Taqele Naiyaravoro has revealed he would stay in Australia if he gets called up by the Wallabies despite signing an overseas deal.

The Waratahs winger has signed a three-year deal with Edinburgh from next season, but has a clause in his contract that allows him to pull out if called up by Australia.

Against the Sharks Naiyaravoro scored his second try in as many weeks, and he seems to be on Australia's radar ahead of the World Cup, however the Fijian-born flyer admits his focus remains on the Waratahs for the moment.

"Yeah, if I get selection, yeah, I would like to stay here," he told Fairfax Media, adding that Michael Cheika's interest was a big encouragement. 

"It gives me a lot of confidence but my main focus is with the Tahs.

"If that time [selection] comes, if it's in God's plan, then I will put my hand up, but in the time being I'm just trying to play my best footy. If it happens, it happens."
