Dane Haylett-Petty has revealed that he has rejected several offers from European clubs.
The Australian winger wants to play in a World Cup so badly, he has turned down several big money offers from Europe to realise his dream.
Haylett-Petty experienced a breakthrough year in 2016 which attracted the attention of quite a few clubs, Bordeaux Begles being chief among them. However, the winger who can also play fullback wants to fulfil his dream in Japan.
The talented back revealed that the offers have been good, but he’s sticking around.
“I have had some good offers out of Europe, they were tempting but I’ll be around next year,” Haylett-Petty told the West Australian.
“We’re working through a few things but as long as the Force is here I’ll be here. I’m hoping to build on last season and I’m looking forward to being here for the next world cup.”
Haylett-Petty has one year left on his Western Force contract is will join up with his team-mates for pre-season training on Monday.
“I’m told there is a really good feel in training,” he said.
“There’s a really young group that has brought a lot of energy and at the same time there is some real experience in the leadership group.”
