Tuqiri contemplating comeback

Hopefully I am over all that bad luck
Former Wallaby wing Lote Tuqiri could return to Rugby Union next year.
Tuqiri has spent the last two seasons with Rugby League side the West Tigers and looks unlikely to be awarded a new contract at the end of the NRL season due to complications from a broken arm.
At 33 years of age, Tuqiri is now considering returning to Rugby Union in 2014.
"I am going alright and if it's not here at the Tigers then it will probably have to be somewhere else," said Tuqiri.
"I am sifting through a few things at the moment and hopefully have something for everyone in the next couple of weeks.
"There are a few things there, I will just have to weigh them up with the family and take it from there.
"[Rugby Union's] an option as well, having some experience in it and we'll just see how the next few weeks pan out.
"I have struggled in the past with the weight of expectation around contract time but I am older now and I can just go out there and enjoy myself.
"I have put two games together now and hopefully I can see out the season. It's been a tough two years with injuries but hopefully I am over all that bad luck."
