It seems that controversial footballer Israel Folau is attempting a comeback to the sport, and could soon be playing here on the Gold Coast.
He’s believed to have teamed up with local billionaire Clive Palmer to play for a local club.
They’ve lodged an application for Folau to play with the Southport Tigers, where Mr Palmer is a patron.

Folau was banned from the sport of Rugby Union, for his very vocal and controversial views on same-sex marriage.
He then looked to return to Rugby League this year, which also didn’t eventuate.
Clive Palmer has taken out massive newspaper ads in today’s pages, which read ‘Let Israel Folau play football’.
The pair are expected to confirm their plans to the media in a press conference this morning.
It’s understood the decision will ultimately fall to the QRL.
