Foley would listen to offers

Waratahs fly-half Bernard Foley could join the growing number of players heading north, saying he is “definitely” interested in listening to offers from overseas.

The 25-year-old, who is currently Australia’s starting number ten, gave an honest response when asked about where his playing future lies.

Recently Adam Ashley-Cooper, Sekope Kepu and Nic White were confirmed to have signed for Top 14 clubs, with more expected in the coming months.

And Foley’s response to a question about his own future after the upcoming World Cup in England gave a clear indication he may be one of those.

“Definitely,” he told Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph.

“That’s the beauty of rugby being a world game, you can go over and experience new cultures and languages. It’s a great thing.

“I never thought that rugby would be a career of mine or that I’d be able to play at this level I still sort of pinch myself.

“Being given the chance to start through the sevens and then at the Waratahs, you are never sure when that opportunity will come.

“Sometimes you’re not prepared or not ready for it but you’ve got to apply yourself fully and try to make the most of it because you never know.

“You don’t want to walk away thinking that you just missed out on a great opportunity.”
