Code-switching Koroibete set for Wallabies call-up

Code-switching Melbourne Storm winger Marika Koroibete has revealed that Michael Cheika is set to select him for Australia's tour of Europe in November.

Fiji-born flyer Koroibete confirmed in May that he had agreed a deal to join Super Rugby franchise Rebels on a two-year contract.

The 24-year-old, who is gearing up to feature in the NRL finals after the Storm won the minor premiership, said Wallabies head coach Cheika has informed him that he will board the plane for a seven-match tour of Europe.

"I spoke to him [Cheika] before I signed with the Rebels and he's going to take me on the spring tour with the boys," Koroibete said.

"I'm just thinking of the Storm at the moment but I'm excited to get back into rugby union and it will be a big challenge after six or seven years not playing."

Koroibete is determined to sign off in style as he prepares to take on North Queensland Cowboys in an NRL qualifying final at AAMI Park on Saturday.

He added: "Coming into the finals there's not long to go so there's a bit of emotion as I will miss the boys,

"It's motivating me too as I want to finish on top and it would mean a lot to me and my family, especially my family back at home."
