Former NRL star Jamie Soward has said he will listen to an offer form St George Illawarra to return to the club, if it presents itself.

Soward could return to the club he guided to a premiership in 2010 following a serious knee injury to halfback Drew Hutchison.

He may be on the radar as a replacement, which he has not ruled out.

"You want to play forever and obviously you’d sit down and listen to the offer," Soward told Fox Sports News on Friday.

"But I’d have to be given some time to get back in shape, make the decision and be 100 per cent committed. But you never say never.

"At the moment I’m enjoying watching the boys slog it out in pre-season."

Soward retired form the game just over a month ago after 12 years in the NRL, and two stints over in England.

But he admits a starting spot for the Dragons would be hard to refuse.

"It would be hard to turn down,” the former NSW Origin representative said.

"The position that I’m in, I’d like to think I wouldn’t be going in to trial.

"I’ve got enough runs on the board to come in and play halfback for the Dragons."
