Foster has suggested that SBW has make good progress and be in contention to play in the Rugby World Cup’s first round against rivals South Africa.

“Is he going home? No.”

“Is he available for selection based on his progression last week, I think the answer is yes,” Foster told 1News.

In this era of social media Foster suggests anyone can share anything on twitter these days and people will follow it.

“Bit disappointing a mischievous person has tweeted something with no information behind it.”

Foster has suggested there has been a successful progression plan for a number of the players going through minor injuries and are on track to be 100 percent fit.
