Transfer News: Leicester Tigers star confirms he will return to Australia
Matt Toomua is on the verge of shock Test recall in the Bledisloe Cup opener after returning to Australia to finalise his future and a looming deal with the Melbourne Rebels, according to the Syndey Morning Herald.
The former ACT Brumbies playmaker is back in Australia and has spoken with Wallabies coach Michael Cheika about potentially playing in the first Test of the Rugby Championship in Sydney on August 18.
Toomua is expected to sign a two-and-a-half year contract with the Rebels to reignite his Australian rugby career and his hopes of playing at the World Cup next year.
He will play in England for Leicester this season. But the benefit of his future move to the Rebels is that it makes him immediately available for Wallabies duties if required.
