Pewhairangi considers options including possible move to Ireland

By Tamati Tiananga

Apirana Pewhairangi of Ngāti Porou is keen to play another season in the NRL, but it will be a waiting game for the promising player with offers still to come to the table.

Pewhairangi is back in New Zealand spending time with family before he makes a return to Australia to play in the inaugural Ngā Hau e Whā competition this weekend for Norths.

Apirana Pewhairangi's NRL future with the Parramatta Eels has ended for the meantime, and his future in the NRL is unconfirmed for 2015. 

The centre, five-eighth player is reconsidering his future in the NRL.

Pewhairangi says he will leave his future in the hands of his manager, but hinted a possible move to Ireland could be on the cards.  Pewhairangi played for Ireland at last year's Rugby League World Cup.

He has also considered making a code switch to rugby.

He will return to Australia today to feature in the Norths side of the Ngā Hau e Whā tournament coach by former Kiwi Mark Horo this weekend than play for the NZ Māori who will tour Australia.
