Charlotte Caslick is set to stay in rugby after declaring she is close to finalising a new contract to see her through to the 2020 Olympics.
Last month the Courier Mail reported the Brisbane Broncos were chasing the 23-year-old Olympic gold medalist but after a farewell function for the Aussie Sevens teams ahead of the World Cup next weekend, she declared she was sticking with Sevens.
“I am definitely committed to Australian rugby and I am looking forward to going to Tokyo,” Caslick told RUGBY.com.au.
“I have so many goals here that I am still yet to tick off. It’s great to see that there are other sports out there and the competitive market is growing and growing.
“It’s really exciting for us but at the same time there are still things that want to finish here before I venture somewhere else,” she said.
During the media speculation, the idea was floated that playing in both competitions could be an option.
However, that was quickly dashed after the addition of Colorado to the women's series would overlap with the NRL Women's Premiership which is between September and October.
“Just with our season starting earlier this year with the Colorado leg in October, it doesn’t give us much time to play around with that,” Caslick said.
