Global Rapid Rugby is offering Israel Folau a rugby career lifeline in their competition.

Pacific Sports International boss Richard Fale is confident that Folau still has a future in rugby union in which he adds the focus of Global Rapid Rugby and their organisation is fielding the best rugby players on the planet.

Fale believes Rapid Rugby will be a perfect fit for Folau where he will be part of the Tongan team and also have the chance to play for the Mate Ma'a Tonga ‑ the Tongan national rugby league team.

This comes after the NRL made it clear that Folau isn't welcome in their competition.

The 30‑year‑old is still waiting to receive his punishment from Rugby Australia following his guilty verdict of breaching his rugby contract on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Waratahs will face the Lions at 1.05am Sunday.

In tonight’s games, the Blues will host the Hurricanes at 7.35pm while the Rebels will take on the Reds at 9.45pm.

The Crusaders will take on Bulls at 5.10am tomorrow, the Highlanders will face the Jaguares at 5.15pm tomorrow while the Chiefs will host the Sharks at 7.35pm tomorrow night.
