Waikato Chiefs back Sosene Anesi has admitted that a switch to the Waratahs would be tempting.

Anesi's current deal with the New Zealand Rugby Union comes to an end this year - and after a frustrating time at the Chiefs, the Samoan-born winger or full-back feels the time is right to move on.

Injuries and the form of Mils Muliaina, Sitiveni Sivivatu and Lelia Masaga has meant Anesi, who won his only cap for the All Blacks in 2005, is keen to move on to get some regular game time.

And the Waratahs could now offer Anesi the chance to revive his career, with the New South Wales club looking to replace Lote Tuqiri.

"I've been talking to my management and looking at options for the Super 14," Anesi told stuff.co.nz

"I heard the Waratahs are quite interested but I don't know what's happening yet.

"If the opportunity's there I'll take it. I haven't had much rugby this year with the Chiefs, with injuries and stuff, so what I'm trying to do is make sure I get on the park and play some rugby. I want to play so (a move) would be a good opportunity for me."
