Current Wallabies rugby union star Israel Folau is rumoured to be getting closer to a return to rugby league.
The rumours were given a boost this week, when Folau and his manager, Isaac Moses, were spotted having discussions with NRL‘s head of football, Todd Greenberg.
The meeting took place at the Azure Cafe at Allianz Stadium, and reportedly lasted about 40 minutes, with the player leaving after about 20.
The NRL insisted that the meeting with Greenberg was simply social, however. Greenberg apparently said it was his birthday, so Folau offered to buy him a coffee.
“It was not a business discussion.”
Meanwhile, it is also reported in the Sydney Morning Herald that Kurtley Beale’s return to rugby league is a done deal, with the Wallabies international set to switch codes and join the Canterbury Bulldogs.
He is also managed by the ID Elite Sports agency, like Folau.
