Fifita: Money in union too good to resist

Andrew Fifita said he would be "there in a heartbeat" if a rugby union club offered to increase his salary by 500,000 Australian dollars.

Cronulla Sharks forward Andrew Fifita has said he would have no hesitation in walking away from the NRL for a lucrative rugby union contract.

Speculation is raging over the future of Parramatta Eels wing Semi Radradra, who has been tipped to make a cross-code switch to France's Top 14.

Fifita has also been previously linked to the 15-man game and acknowledged the financial attraction of swapping league for union.

The New South Wales representative told Channel 9: "If someone was offering me 500 grand to go, on top of my contract, I'd be there in a heartbeat, 100 per cent.

"I've got to look at the future, what's best for my kids and family and I think if someone is throwing that much money, I'll be there.

"I'd break it [a contract] - it's too good [an amount of] money to give up and I'd walk from the game.

"I'd love to give it a go, one day in the near future."
