Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has been linked with a move back to the NRL with the French.
RTS made his NRL debut with the Welsh in 2012 before the star fullback left for the Warriors at the end of 2015.
The Dally M Medal winner later switched codes and joined Auckland Blues in mid-2021, before making his All Blacks debut last year.

But with just three All Black appearances to his name, he is unlikely to make his squad for the World Cup this year.
The heated chatter of domestic and French great Bryan Fletcher was only growing.
Roger (Tuivasa-Sheck) returns to the Choos after the rumors that the servants hear. That’s what I hear, said Fletcher on SEN.
“When we go over to our Kiwi friends, asking them because the rumors are getting bigger and louder.
“I’m not geeing you, rumors are very, very strong.”

Mass bThe Dolphins also believe the Tuivasa-Sheck story will do, per WWOS.
“The Warriors probably don’t have room in their salary cap to accommodate the former captain, but one team is empty and desperate for a superstar signing … the Dolphins,” he said.
“Don’t be surprised if Wayne Bennett has a quiet chat at RTS in the coming months.
“Everyone has come back after a dark side – and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck could be the next to make the transition back to rugby league.
The likes of Wendell Nauta, Lote Tuqiri, Mat Rogers and Sam Burgess have all tried their hand at the 15 side game, with varying degrees of success, before returning to the league in recent years.
HOOKER HEAT THE BATTLE
Brisbane have re-signed young gun Cory Paix who will battle with Billy Walters this season for the No. 9 Jersey.
Paix made his NRL debut with the Broncos in 2020 and has decided to extend his stay at Red Hill until the end of 2025 per the AAP.
He has 29 four-year appearances to his name, but Walters has been a starter for most of last season.
Paix and Walters, who turns 29 next week, are competing this summer to start in Round 1 against the Panthers.
Both can also play in the halves and the two will likely feature the best Kevin Walters in 2023 every week 17.

Paix played 12 games last year, all off the bench, and Brisbane won nine of them, but Jake Turpin’s move to the Welshmen provides more opportunities.
The Broncos now have four hooks in their squad, Walters (2024), teenager Blake Mozer (2025) and former Melbourne Storm hoe Tyson Smoothy (2023).
Smoothy will start at the hooker in Brisbane’s trial with Wynnum-Manly on Saturday.
