    Brumbies courting Force flyer

    Sydney - Brumbies boss Michael Thomson says the club are interested in signing Wallabies flyer Dane Haylett-Petty if the Force are axed from Super Rugby.

    The 27-year-old is one of Australian rugby's brightest prospects having forced his way into the Wallabies reckoning last season. 

    And Haylett-Petty has revealed that his wish is to remain in Australia - should the Force be axed - in the hope of representing the country in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. 

    "I will find another club in Australia, I'm committed to trying to play for the Wallabies, that's my main focus," Haylett-Petty told The Sydney Morning Herald. 

    "I'd love to be there at the next World Cup, so I'm here for the next couple of years. 

    "I came back (from Japanese rugby in 2014) to have a crack playing for the Wallabies, now that I'm here playing I'm not going to give it up easily. 

    "I'm definitely here for the next couple of years, keen to fight it out for my position here." 

    Haylett-Petty's comments have attracted the Brumbies with Thomson saying he would be an ideal fit at the Canberra-based side. 

    "We're always keen to take a look at high quality players, particularly players we believe can fit into our culture and style of play and if there was an opportunity to talk to Dane, we'd certainly take a look," Thomson said.
