Rugby league star Sam Tomkins has revealed he would consider switching codes to play rugby union for England in time for the 2015 World Cup.
Tomkins, who helped Wigan Warriors to a 16-0 victory over Hull in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley last month has been linked to a move to NRL side New Zealand Warriors after the rugby league World Cup in England in October.
But the 24-year-old insisted that he has not signed a contract to join the Warriors. He said he is focussing on trying to help Wigan win the Super League and England the rugby league World Cup but did rule out following in the footsteps of his brother and former team-mate Joel - the Saracens and England Saxons centre - by moving to rugby union at some stage.
"I am not one of these people who is all about league and says union is rubbish," Tomkins told the Telegraph.
"Seeing England play at Twickenham in front of tens of thousands of people, that is what would do it for me.
"The international scene in rurgby union would be what I would want to get into at some point if I could."
When asked if a switch of codes might come in time for him to play for England at the 2015 World Cup, Tomkins said: "It would be nice. I would never say never if the opportunity came up.
"To be involved in any World Cup would be amazing so to get into a union one at some point would be amazing. I have not made any plans for the next two years."
Tomkins has already played a game in the 15-man code. He scored a try for the Barbarians against Australia at Twickenham in 2011.
