All Blacks hooker and enthusiastic NRL fan Dane Coles says he’d back a code swap from former Hurricanes teammate TJ Perenara.
Cole believes the halfback is made for the 13-man code.
1 NEWS revealed last week that Perenara is in discussions to join the Sydney Roosters with speculation swirling around New Zealand Rugby’s willingness to re-sign the 29-year-old after his Japanese rugby stint.
Coles said if Perenara did swap to the NRL, he’d expect him to excel.
Perenara was also offered a contract with the Storm as a 15-year-old but turned it down.
