Genia looks set to stay with Reds

1:46 pm on 30 April 2012

The Australian halfback Will Genia looks like he's about to perform a huge backflip and remain with the Queensland Reds Super Rugby franchise.

Two days after the Queensland Rugby Union announced Genia was set to join the Western Force in 2013, the Reds vice-captain will hold a media conference with coach Ewen McKenzie this afternoon.

Negotiations between Genia and the Reds were dramatically reopened yesterday after it was reported the Force had lured him west with a $600,000-per-season deal.

While the Queensland Rugby Union announced on Saturday night they could not match the Force's offer, Genia himself said he was still undecided.
