Iestyn Harris has moved a step closer to returning to rugby league after the Welsh Rugby Union revealed he wants to quit their code.
The Cardiff Blues centre could be poised to sign for Super League giants Bradford Bulls after instructing his solicitors to start negotiations to
release him from his rugby union contracts this week.
WRU group chief executive David Moffett said: "We have had a letter from his lawyers, but haven't heard anything from Iestyn himself.
"That is disappointing, but we have handed his letter to our lawyers."
The 28-year-old's WRU contract runs for another season, so he could still play union for Wales.
But that is unlikely to happen if the former Leeds Rhinos star returns north.
