This whole saga may hopefully act as a deterent to any other league player planning a lucrative deal in Japanese Rugby Union, AFL, Gaelic football, Netball or Tiddlywinks.....
Whilst the money be good, you may struggle to slot back into your original code, especially into a tightly controlled salary capped sport.
For what it's worth I believe Folau wants to go back to the NRL, hence he's only signed a one year deal in Union as a "stop gap" until someone can fit him under their 2014 cap.

"Rugby League is rugby in the simplest form in the sense that it's about great defence, great tackling technique, good handling, good passing, catching and great kicking."
