    Israel Folau is a great player. If he played full back or centre he could carve up the NRL. He would be a force in Origin and attract lots of union viewers to his club and Origin games.

    But a further bonus to having Israel Folau back in the NRL is that his departure would screw the Waratahs, the Wallabies, and interest in rugby union in Australia.

    So you don't want Jarryd Hayne back in the NRL either? That is the logic of your "position."

    Don't really care to be honest. There are alot of brilliant youngsters coming through, we have some great players who are still quite young. I wish people would stop going on about him, how many of these stupid f**king Folau topics do we need to see. He is gone, build a bridge and get over it or jump off it.

    Don't care. He's a great player, but we have lots of exciting talent in the NRL - and he'd be absolutely no chance of playing for my club :p

    I've barely even given him a second thought in the past few years.

    Yes.

    My whole livelihood depends on it.

    Please come back Israel, you're our only hope.

    NRL should have thrown a suitcase of money at him to join the Knights or titans. About time we did some strategic recruiting to bolster struggling clubs.

    That's a great call. GC especially would generate a great platform to build from. Forget what position he plays, they would get so much positive media.

    If he comes back, great. If not, meh. I'm not losing any sleep over it. With the cash Union provides him why would he want to come back? I wouldn't either if I were him.

    He was a bit overrated. People talk him up as a superstar of the game, but by the time he left he was probably wasn't even the best outside back at the Broncos (Hodges and yow yeh)
