ARU dreams big about Folau

8:21 am on 6 December 2012

Australian rugby is dreaming big following the signing of Israel Folau, who rejected an offer from the Parramatta league club to join the Sydney-based New South Wales Waratahs Super Rugby franchise.

Folau has given Australian league a new target of derision after years of sniping at code-hopping Sonny Bill Williams, by returning to the code he last played as a schoolboy after a lucrative though unsuccessful two years in Aussie Rules.

The former Wallabies centre Tim Horan believes 23-year-old Folau has the pedigree to line up for Robbie Deans' Wallabies within the year.
