Folau could play aussie rules footy well imo. Unlike KHunt and Inglis who have yet to prove any skills that are involved in the game.

Apparently Folau has never played AFL footy before, other than a kick with a mate or whatever.

http://www.nrl.com/news/news/newsarticle/tabid/10874/newsid/58478/folau-officially-a-free-agent/default.aspx

It's open season on in-demand Israel Folau after the young Brisbane star declined to take up a contract option with the club for the 2011-12 NRL seasons.

Folau, though, hasn't told Brisbane he is leaving the club or, if he is, where he is heading.

By allowing his option to lapse, the explosive 21-year-old Test and Queensland State of Origin representative is a free agent and open to all offers from all clubs in all codes.

Brisbane officials refused to confirm on Friday whether Folau - linked on Thursday night to a $3 million AFL offer and also firmly in the sights of rugby's expansion club the Melbourne Rebels - had taken up his option for the next two seasons.

But it's believed he let the option expire, which effectively means his contract with the Broncos becomes null and void.

When Folau signed his multi-year deal with Brisbane in 2008 the club had not appointed a coach, which is why he was able to have an option for the last two years written in.

Once the deadline was reached at 5pm on Friday, he automatically voided any ties with Brisbane beyond this season.

That doesn't mean he can't strike up another deal with the Broncos should his other options fall through.

However, he would have to start negotiations from scratch with a new contract, risking the club spending the majority of its salary cap in the meantime, possibly on some of the $1 million in talent Melbourne need to shed to get under the salary cap for next year.

It's believed the ARU and the Melbourne Rebels are working on a contract for Folau worth between $600,000 and $800,000 a season.

They were the hot favourites to sign Folau until reports on the Nine Network of a left-field bid from the AFL believed to be worth $1 million a season - most likely to headline the Greater Western Sydney franchise.

Acting Rebels CEO Pat Wilson had no comment on the AFL offer but reiterated the new franchise was not interested in mercenaries.

"That's still the case," he told AAP.

"We want people who are committed to setting up a new team.

"Israel has a history with Melbourne (at the Storm) and likes the city."

The AFL rocked rugby league last July when it snared another Brisbane superstar, Karmichael Hunt, who coincidentally is managed by the same management company which handles Folau.

GWS chief executive Dale Holmes refused to confirm whether the AFL franchise had been in discussions with Folau.

"Ever since the Gold Coast signed Karmichael Hunt we've had every man and his dog assigned to us," Holmes told Sydney's Sky Sports Radio.

"Jarryd Hayne, apparently we tried to do a deal there which is not true, recently we've had (Greg) Inglis and (Billy) Slater and now it's supposed to be Folau. Could be (Sachin) Tendulkar next I think.

"I'm not going to make a comment or speculate on that because we've had too many people already speculating on it ... we're not going to make any comment on any speculation, that's the principle we believe in."

While AFL boss Andrew Demetriou admits to admiring Folau as an athlete he wasn't giving any credence to reports the Bronco superstar had been "tested" and had been approached.

"He's an outstanding athlete - I know that much. But it's up to him what he decides to do," said Demetriou.

Folau's decision not to reveal his future plans means Australian and Queensland Origin selectors would be unlikely to rule him out of representative football.

Rep selectors have no official policy on excluding code-crossers but are reluctant to pick them, citing the need to build for the future.

Hunt delayed his AFL announcement last year until after the interstate series so he could play Origin for Queensland.

Brisbane chief executive Bruno Cullen did not return calls from AAP on Friday to confirm reports Folau had failed to take up his two-year option.

Folau's manager Isaac Moses also did not immediately return calls.

haha love the telecast tonight...

folau kicked the ball and the comment was "sheedy will be taking note of that one" (the kick went about a metre)

ive gotten to the stage where i dont care if we lose him from the game. he obviously isnt passionate enough about the game. i say good luck to him but i really dont care about him anymore.

I'm not so sure anymore. Folau's form this season has been scintillating, while touching up Inglis last week in a dominant display. While Inglis hasn't been that great this year. It's a very hard decision to who I'd want in my team.

QUEENSLAND Origin star Israel Folau looks set to remain in the NRL after officially telling the Melbourne Rebels he would not be pursuing a career in rugby.

The 21-year-old Brisbane Broncos centre, who was not considered for this month's Anzac Tests because of pending negotiations with the ARU, contacted the Rebels through his manager on Friday and informed them he wouldn't be accepting a possible $400,000-a-season offer to switch codes.

''We got the call from his manager, Isaac Moses, Friday to let us know he wouldn't be coming to the Melbourne Rebels,'' said Melbourne official Wani Wall. ''And whilst we're disappointed, we pursued it only because when they came to us we felt that he genuinely wanted to come to Melbourne.
