Roosters gun Luke Keary has already put his hand up to be named the NRL's 'buy of the year' for 2017.
Now he’s declared his willingness to represent Ireland at the end-of-season World Cup.
Keary is not only eligible for the Wolfhounds through his grandfather's heritage – he's also a dual Australian-Irish citizen.

His links to the Emerald Isle are genuine.
So, too, is his passion to represent the minnows should he not make Australia's squad.
Michael Morgan is another top half who's also eligible for Ireland, but he's considered a lock for Kangaroos selection after being part of last year's Four Nations squad.
Other eligible players for Ireland include Daniel Vidot, Rory Kostjasyn, Jayden Nikorima, Jai Field, and Blake Ayshford.
