Press release from Queensland Rugby League
Queensland Rugby League can today confirm Israel Folau has been registered to play for the Southport Tigers in the Rugby League Gold Coast competition.
As previously stated, the QRL Board has carefully considered all aspects of the registration request, in line with its current rules and processes.
The QRL made clear from the outset that Mr Folau would be registered upon completion of the registration process, including the obtaining of a release from his previous overseas club, as per the rules of the game which apply to all players.
This has today been forthcoming with authorisation from the game’s international body, meaning the QRL has now been able to finalise his registration with the Southport Tigers.
