Waratahs fullback Israel Folau missed the Waratahs flight to South Africa on Saturday due to a bruised throat.
Folau is however expected to join his Waratahs team mates next week as he will fly out with team physiotherapist Alex Hill on Monday.
The Waratahs are on their way to Durban South Africa where they will face tournament leaders the Sharks.
"He got a bump on his throat, nothing major, but there was just a bit of swelling," Waratahs coach Michael Cheika told the Courier Mail.
The Waratahs was quick to say the Folau would be available to play against the Sharks.
"Because of the altitude, the doctor didn't want him to go up there in case it made him feel more uncomfortable, and then there is obviously a big issue around sleep and recovery before we get there.
"One of our physios is coming over either (Sunday) or Monday, and he'll be coming over with her."
