Former Australia star George Smith would consider a Wallabies reappearance.
After recently signing a short term contract with the ACT Brumbies in the Australian Super Rugby the former Wallabies player George Smith says he would consider putting on the green and gold once again according to Fox Sports.
Smith has been absent from Australian competition for the last two years while he has been playing in the Japanese competition for team Suntory Sungoliath.
Despite the 110-test veterans glowing record which already includes appearances for the Wallabies in the last British and Irish Lions tour the back rower says his first priority is to earn his place at the Brumbies.
The selection of Smith is another strong selection by master coach Jack White who has gathered a backline contingent that would make most Super Rugby clubs green with envy.
Former teammate George Gregan and Eddie Jones are among the voices calling for Smith to be considered for selection when the June Lions tour begins which has led to Smith considering his options if he were to get the call-up.
The newest Brumbie is firmly focused on the looming game against rivals NSW Waratahs in their centenary match at Canberra stadium in round 4. Smith knows that he still needs to train hard to be worth of his Brumbies position after competing in the less-intensive Japanese competition.
“I’d love to play within that game but first and foremost I have to earn my spot in the Brumbies side,” he said.
“And that’s why I’m turning up tomorrow (Friday) in Canberra and training well and meeting the guys.”
