White aims for Super League

France international Greg White is looking for a chance in Super League after deciding to leave Toulouse.

White, 23, played for Toulouse during their Championship campaign last season, before staying on to play in the French Elite League during the autumn and winter.

The Manly-born winger qualifies to play for France through his mother, and also holds English nationality, making him a potentially attractive proposition for Super League clubs who have already maximised their alloted quota spots.

Following the completion of the French season, he has now opted to leave Toulouse and put himself on the open market.

He said: "I believe that the more players that move from France to Super League, then the more exposure and depth French rugby league will enjoy.

"Catalan is a great club, like Toulouse who may one day soon join them in Super League, but we need to create a foundation with more good, French players playing throughout Super League.

"Jason Robinson is one of my heros, a guy who came out and conquered adversity with the great footwork and other skill gifts he was given. Jason worked closely with my Australian S&C coach, Marty Hulme, in his days at Wigan and I’ve received lot’s of encouragement through his story and others. Stepping out into adversity to achieve great things is something that makes this sport and the people within it special – and I’m keen to lead the way for others as an example to achieve.

"So if someone will trial me, I’ll be on the first plane to England to prove what i can bring to the sport. They have nothing to lose, and I promise I have everything to give."

White was named in Bobbie Goulding's 30-man squad for the end of season international against England and subsequent European Cup in 2011.

In 2011, he scored 14 tries in 24 appearances for Toulouse in their final season in the Championship, before they opted to return to play in the French domestic league.
