Folau To Play Origin?
Queensland Origin coach Mal Meninga has told Triple M Brisbane he'd love to see Israel Folau back in a Maroon jersey.
"We've had a lot of success over recent years as well even since Izzy's departure. So in all honesty and we have faith in days gone before, if Izzy's playing well and he's playing in the NRL he's a great chance of playing rep footy," Mal told The Grill Team.
However, Mal said the former Brisbane Broncos would need to bulk up if he wants to return to his dominating best.
"He had to train accordingly to try and play AFL at the highest level, so he's got to obviously physically bulk up a fair bit," Mal said.
"I don't think that will cause him too much trouble Marto to be honest with you being a Pacific Islander backgrounder, I think he'll bulk up pretty quickly and he'll get back into the swing of things pretty quickly regardless of what code he plays," Mal told Marto on the breakfast show.
