Fresh from signing a new three-year contract with the ARU, Israel Folau has confirmed who he will be playing for in Japan.

Folau's flexible contract means he will spend part of the year playing in Japan with the NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes.

The Waratahs full-back will be playing alongside Eben Etzebeth and Handré Pollard in Osaka as the club look to challenge for the play-offs after missing out on the top four last season.

Folau will play in Japan until the end of the season in February before returning to the Waratahs ahead of the 2016 Super Rugby campaign.

The full-back is expected to earn around $700,000 (AUS) per season playing in the Top League.
