Wallabies star Israel Folau says a return to the NRL is an option after his contract expires with the ARU next year.
Folau is two years into a three year deal with the ARU and there has been widespread speculation about his playing future.
The 25-year-old former AFL and rugby league player will have no shortage of offers, with several domestic and international rugby union clubs set to try and lure the megastar.
Speaking in Cardiff ahead of the Wallabies’ clash with Wales however, Folau said a return to the NRL was not out of the equation and that a return under Wayne Bennett at the Brisbane Broncos would be an enticing prospect.
“Obviously I’ve played rugby league and that could be an option; playing rugby in Australia or elsewhere… there’s options everywhere,” Folau is quoted as saying by The Courier Mail.
“Everyone would love to play under Wayne. Everyone says good things about him. He’s certainly a great coach but more so they talk about him as a great person.”
Folau previously spent two years at the Brisbane Broncos, though under Ivan Henjak.
