Union after Tomane

Tomane targeted to switch codes

Gold Coast Titans centre Joseph Tomane is being targeted to switch codes, with Super rugby franchise the Brumbies confirming an interest in the off-contract youngster.

 

The 21-year-old returns to the starting 17 against the Dragons tonight for just his second NRL appearance this season.

Considered a future superstar when he joined the club from the Melbourne Storm last year, Tomane has struggled to cement a spot in first grade due to both injury and form, the Gold Coast Bulletin reports.

An Australian Schoolboys rugby union sensation, Tomane was at the centre of a cross-code tug-of-war back in 2007 when the Nudgee College product agreed to a scholarship with Melbourne and then tried to back out.
