The Brisbane Broncos have lost another star to AFL.
Israel Folau has accepted a massive three million dollar offer to switch to the AFL and will line up for the new Greater Western Sydney team.
He's apparently keen to play full forward. The deal will be finalised by the end of the week.
The 21 year-old, who has played eight Tests for Australia and six State of Origin games for Queensland, will sign a three-year deal with expansion AFL club Greater Western Sydney, who enter the competition in 2012.
Folau is the second big name Bronco to make the leap to AFL after another of the club's superstars, fullback Karmichael Hunt, signed a big deal with the Gold Coast Football Club which will debut in the code next year.
Hunt said he thought Folau would be able to make the move from the NRL without any problems.
"He definitely has the skill set to make the transition," Hunt told a packed press conference on the Gold Coast.
