Tuqiri to sign with Union next

Brisbane Broncos' and representative winger, Lote Tuqiri is poised to sign with Rugby Union for a reported $375,000 per year.

Although stopping short of calling it 'done deal', ARU officials have announced that they expect to have Tuqiri's signature next week to coincide with the build up to the Rugby League Test match against Great Britain in Sydney.

The Wallabies play the All Blacks the following day in Christchurch.
