It looks like there could be a new transtasman sporting glamour couple on the horizon with recent social media exchanges suggesting Silver Fern shooting ace Maria Tutaia and Wallabies star Israel Folau are an item.

The rumours were sparked when Tutaia posted a photo of Folau on instagram with the accompanying message "Bae".

Folau then reciprocated the public display of appreciation by posting a photo of Tutaia at a red carpet event with the hashtag #WCE, meaning "woman crush everyday".


Folau, a former NRL star who switched to rugby three years ago following a brief flirtation with AFL, is based in Sydney with the NSW Waratahs.

He seems to have a thing for Kiwi women however, having previously been linked to former Shortland St star Frankie Adams.
