    Magazine links Israel Folau with New Zealand Warriors in NRL switch

    The 27-year-old Folau, a former Melbourne Storm and Brisbane Broncos player, is reportedly a prime target for the Auckland-based NRL club for 2018.

    He has played rugby for the Waratahs and Wallabies since 2013 after a brief stint with AFL club Greater Western Sydney.

    Australian magazine Rugby League Week reported on Monday that Folau is open to an NRL return, and the Warriors are keen to spend big to get him.

    His relationship with veteran Warriors winger Manu Vatuvei, a close friend, is also thought to be key to any acquisition.

    A move to Auckland might also make sense given his engagement to New Zealand netball star Maria Tutaia, who plays for the Northern Mystics.

    Folau would be a valuable addition to the Warriors' outside back stocks, particularly alongside young gun Solomone Kata in the centres.

    This would be excellent, it would free up a heap of cash for the ARU to invest over here

    Notice how there's not a single word from izzy on the matter though. The "open to a return" line is attributed to rugby league week and doesn't even say he indicated that in an interview.

    Atm it's baseless speculation, but but 2018, I would suspect wed have fullback covered and he doesn't appear to be anything else in Cheika's mind anyway.

    Not your words but calling RLW a magazine is akin to calling the Daily Telecrap a newspaper.

    I know the truth about King Knut's tidal theory. And I agree with him.
