Hurricanes powerhouse Jerry Collins has rubbished reports in a UK newspaper reporting that he has asked to be released from his NZRU contract 18 months early in order to take up an offer with a NH club.

The New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU) may not be so amused, but at least Jerry Collins found the funny side in all the talk about his future.

The NZRU denied the report and a spokesman said they have never been approached by Collins or his representatives for an early release from his contract according to TVNZ.

Collins told reporters that the speculation is quite amazing and the power of the internet is a remarkable thing.

Collins, while not specifically addressing the contract release report, is staggered by the on-going talks about his future.

Collins said he was surprised to learn Bath is the latest European club he is supposedly joining.

He added that next week he expects to read he is off to Hollywood but also added that he has never hidden the fact that he is looking at his options.
