Rugby league would be losing the best winger in the game – if Suliasi Vunivalu switches codes to union, according to his Melbourne NRL teammate – Josh Addo-Carr.

As the Wallabies pick up the pieces from their failed Rugby World Cup campaign, Vunivalu is reportedly a target for 2023 in France.

It is believed the Fijian flyer has been offered a deal that begins, once his contract with the Storm ends at the end of the 2020 NRL season.

The report also suggests – Melbourne would consider releasing Vunivalu early, to free up some space in their salary cap.

There are also suggestions, Japanese rugby could be another option.

Addo-Carr was surprised by the developments but said he would support his clubmate, in whatever decision he chose to make.

However, Addo-Carr believes the 23-year-old Vunivalu is rugby league’s pre- eminent winger, and even claimed his teammate was ‘under-utilised’ at the Storm.

Revelations of Rugby Australia’s interest in Vunivalu comes the same week he and teammate – Nelson Asofa-Solomona, were involved in an off-field incident in Bali.
