Former Manly Roo Lalakai Foketi has been selected for the Wallabies Test verses Wales on Sunday. Lalakai (Roo 2006-2010), who plays in the centres, will make his debut from the bench. Lalakai played U12 to U16 with the Roos before playing with Marlins Colts and Australia U20. Lalakai currently plays with the Waratahs. Lalakai played with a very competitive Roos’ team, which include Reece Hodge (Wallaby and Rebels) and Rory OConnor (Waratah). The Foketi family have made an important contribution to the Roos club over a long period of time. Lalakai’s younger brother, Beau, was also a Roo and his youngest brother, Carter, is a current U6 Roo. Their father Scott has coached Roos teams for over 15 years.
