    Nonu unsure of future


    Jul 25, 2007

    Dynamic midfield back Ma'a Nonu's unsure of his playing future after missing out on the All Blacks World Cup squad.

    The Wellington Lions player has been linked with the All Golds centenary rugby league, along with team-mate Piri Weepu.

    Nonu says he's focusing on the Air New Zealand Cup season and is yet to make a decision on where his career heads next year.

    He says he's not really sure as he is looking at all of the options and will see how it goes.

    Ma'a Nonu says it's unlikely he will be playing for the All Golds as he'll hopefully be in the Air New Zealand Cup final on the same date.

    I think he'd be good for us. What's his judiciary record like?

    His team mates girlfriends will love him, they can share make up tips!!!!

    If he did come hopefully it would be a incentive contract, would not want to throw lots of cash at someone who is not proven.

    Incentive contracts cause salary cap problems.

    Takes a lot to get done in rugby so hasnt been suspended

    His main problem has been beign sin binned for shoulder charges, wouldn't be a problem in league.

    Further news today, Wellington have left them out of their 22 for this weekend so that may push him further towards the NRL path

    I wouldn't imagine he'd come cheap. He could earn good coin playing rugby in Japan or Europe. Unless he has a burning desire to play league which might mitigate the cost.

    Maybe we can sign him as a "marquee" player and organise 3rd party sponsorship from Maybelline or Elizabeth Arden
