Tuqiri to reveal why ARU sacked him if he wants NRL deal

9:03 am on 26 August 2009

Sacked Wallaby star Lote Tuqiri will have to reveal the reasons behind his dismissal from Rugby Union if he wants to play in the National Rugby League competition.

Tuqiri has already met with Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens and a number of other clubs are said to be interested in signing the dual international.

However the NRL chief executive David Gallop says the former Origin and test star would have to disclose all the details which led to his contract with the Australian Rugby Union being terminated, before the NRL would register him as a player.
