Western Force halfback Matt Henjak who was sacked last month is hopeful of playing rugby in Europe next season.

The news comes just a month after Australian Rugby Union boss John O’Neill ripped up the 26 year old scrumhalf’s contract and he looked to be set for some time on the sidelines.

However the former Wallaby looks set to offered a lifeline from the rugby wilderness by a European club.

“I’ve had three or four top European clubs express interest in me for the next northern hemisphere season,” Henjak said in a statement through his manager Greg Keenan.

“My agent is in discussions with those clubs and hopefully something will get worked out in the not too distant future.

“I would have to head to Europe in July to commence pre-season training.

“In the meantime, I’m training hard so that when an opportunity presents itself I’ll be ready.”

Henjak had his contract with the Force torn up after he was found guilty of breaking team-mate Haig Sare’s jaw in a drunken brawl.

The fight was the final straw for the Force and the ARU after Henjak in 2005 became the first Wallaby to be sent home from tour in 40 years following an incident in a Cape Town nightclub.
