Israel Folau believes his former Kangaroos rugby league Test teammate Jarryd Hayne would do well in the 15-a-side game and would potentially provide a great boost to the NSW Waratahs.

Currently trying to make Fiji's Olympic rugby sevens squad, Hayne has yet to decide which code and where he will pay next year, though Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson last week said he would definitely be interested in his services.

"I certainly think if he was to come and play a 15-man code he would do quite well, he's naturally talented to pick up the game," said Folau who played alongside Hayne in one rugby league Test against New Zealand in 2007.
