The latest murmurings in the land of rugby league is that the Parramatta Eels are close to signing Craig Wing.

Apparently he is sick of playing rugby union in Japan and wishes to return home to rugby league.

The Eels were chasing Wing before he went to rugby union so it makes sense they have been keeping tabs on him. Not to mention, they have been chasing every other halfback / play maker on the market this year.

UPDATE: Wayne Beavis, who has managed Wing since 2009, has said that the former League International will be honouring the final year of his Japanese Rugby Union contract despite rumours he is searching for a release.
