Folau turned down Union offer
NEWS: Australian star Israel Folau turned down a return to Rugby Union with Montpellier to stay with Rugby League side Catalans Dragons.
The Dragons rescued his career earlier this year.
The information confirmed an earlier report in Midi Olympique, that the 31-year-old Folau, capped 73 times by the Wallabies before he was sacked for social media comments, was approached by Top 14 side Montpellier.
However, he refused the offer and AFP understands that he could even pen a season extension to his contract with Dragons.
Folau enjoyed a sensational debut for the France-based Super League side in February, scoring a try after just five minutes in a 36-18 win over Castleford.
It was his first taste of rugby league in 10 years having featured for the Brisbane Broncos in the NRL.
