Controversial rugby star Israel Folau could be offered a place in the Tongan national side.
Former Wallaby Toutai Kefu is the head coach of Tonga and says Folau would be welcome in his team.
Folau is waiting to find out just what penalty will be imposed by Rugby Australia after an independent panel found him guilty of a "high level" breach of his contract ‑ for his controversial social media posts.
Folau's parents are Tongan, but Kefu acknoweldges World Rugby rules mean he would be unable to play on International stage for three years.
Kefu told the ABC Folau would need to take a massive pay cut.
