Earle eyes Wales future
South African lock George Earle has revealed his desire to play for Wales in the future following his move to the Scarlets.
Earle agreed a three-year deal with the Welsh region and by the end of that contract he will be eligible for Wales on residency grounds. The former Lions and Cheetahs lock is a big fan of the brand of rugby played by the Welsh under Warren Gatland and would relish the opportunity to play for Wales.
"If the opportunity arises to play for Wales, that would be the biggest honour and I would cherish that moment for the rest of my life," he told Walesonline. "When I left home, I told my dad that's something I wanted to work hard for. He said 'Go for it man'.
"Being selected for Wales would be a big bonus and something I would really look forward to. I will only be 28 when I qualify and hopefully I would be much more mature by then.
