West Wales forward Sam Herron will be leaving his options open for the 2020 season, but would prefer to remain in the UK.
The powerful prop has earned plenty of plaudits during the early stages of the season, after joining from Red Star Belgrade in the off-season.
But, after a spell in Serbia and also in Australia for Mittagong in the Group 6 competition in New South Wales, the Scotsman is looking to settle down closer to home.
“I never thought that I would have done this well so quickly, because I’ve never played in a competition at this level before, but I’ve hit the ground running.
“It was great getting back to the UK and it’s a big learning curve taking on a team who haven’t won a professional game and trying to get them on the right track.
“Getting the chance to stay here would be great for me, being closer to my family and my friends. But if I got offers from elsewhere, I’d take them into consideration.
“Hopefully that’s at West Wales. The way they’ve built from last year, losing 144-0, is a massive amount of progress and it’s a real project club.”
Last week saw West Wales sign former Newcastle Thunder back-rower Gioele Celerino, who played for Italy at the 2013 and 2017 World Cups, and re-sign Wales international Morgan Evans, after losing Ronny Palumbo and Robert Tuliatu to London Skolars.
