Rugby Australia and The Roar reveal some disheartening news. Wallabies winger Mark Nawaqanitawase has signed a two-year deal with Sydney Roosters, a massive blow to Australian rugby. It was expected that the promising back would play against the British and Irish Lions and in a home World Cup. Money isn’t the primary factor; he could have earned more elsewhere. Nawaqanitawase, who met with Roosters coach Trent Robinson, decided that joining the NRL now and returning to rugby later was preferable. It’s a reality check for RA as the best in Australia looks elsewhere.
