Wests Tigers back-row forward Chris Heighington has revealed he wants to play for Great Britain and plans to quit the NRL by the age of 26.
Heighington has a UK passport through his father
The Australian, who also carries a UK passport, hopes to impress in the World Club Challenge against Bradford.
"If the opportunity ever came up, I'd take it with both hands," he told The Sydney Telegraph newspaper.
"I'd love to play club footy over here. I'm 23, in a couple of years I'll be over here for sure."
Heighington, born and raisde in Australia, is rated as one of the most exciting forward prospects in his homeland.
He qualifies for a UK passport through his father, Tom, who was born just outside Liverpool and left at the age of 15.
"I'm really close to my dad, he's really into the English culture and I love it here," Heighington added.
