Kyle Eastmond has knocked back the chance to return to rugby league and signed two-year contract extension with his rugby union side Bath.
But the 26-year old has ruled that out a return to his native code for now with a new contract.
“When I set out to come to rugby union, I came for the long term,” Eastmond told The Daily Mail.
“I’ve been here for four years now. If a couple of things don’ t go my way, I’ve still got goals that I want to achieve.
‘I’m happy at Bath and there’s still a long way for us to go to achieve those things. With the talent we’ve got, there’s no reason we can’t do something special together.’
Eastmond has not ruled out a potential move back to rugby league later in his career.
“I’ve known Sam since I was 13 or 14 years old,” Eastmond said.
“He’s a top guy and if he feels that he wanted to go back home, you’ve got to respect his decision. We put that behind us and cracked on.”
