Hayman still wants to play in the World Cup

11:25 am on 23 March 2010

The former All Black prop Carl Hayman says he'd love to play in next year's World Cup in New Zealand.

Hayman, who has been in Newcastle since 2007, has signed to play for French rugby club Toulon for the next 3 seasons in a deal reported to be worth more than a million dolars a year.

The New Zealand Rugby Union has a policy of not picking players for the All Blacks who are based overseas.

However 30 year-old Hayman says he'd still like to be considered, but he knows the rules.
