Folau reportedly spotted meeting Broncos


//

Exiled Wallabies star Israel Folau could be headed back to the NRL after reportedly meeting with the Brisbane Broncos last week.

Folau last appeared in the NRL in a Broncos jersey before his multi-million dollar move to the AFL to join the GWS Giants.

The 30-year-old appeared in 39 matches for the Broncos between 2009-10 and scored 37 tries, and according to NRL reporter Ben Dobbin, met with management.

"You know who was having a meeting at the Broncos last week?" Dobbin told Triple M.

"In the coffee shop at the Broncos, Israel Folau was having a meeting with the management of the Brisbane Broncos last week on Origin Wednesday."

The former Wallabies star is also understood to have been spotted in Melbourne on Thursday afternoon, the same city where he plied his trade for the Storm between 2007 and 2008.

However, despite the reported meeting, there remains significant roadblocks between Folau and a return to the NRL.

ARLC Chairman Peter Beattie and NRL boss Todd Greenberg have both continually expressed that the controversial star was not welcome back.

“Our position on Israel Folau remains the same,” Beattie told reporters.

“We are an inclusive game with respect for all. Israel has social media posts online that go against what our game stands for.

“As it stands, he will not be considered for registration. What Israel chooses to do in relation to his social media posts and his faith is a matter for him.”
