Dual Australian international Israel Folau and New Zealand netball star Maria Tutaia have joined forces to form sport's newest power couple.
The Wallabies full-back and Silver Ferns sharp shooter were spotted together after the Rugby World Cup and again at the Auckland Nines.
They fueled speculation further this week with a flirty exchange on social media.
Tutaia kicked it off by posting a picture of Folau warming up for a Wallabies Test on social media with the caption 'Bae', which stands for, 'Before anything else'.
Folau returned serve by Tweeting a photo of his new flame with the hashtag ‘#WCE’, which stands for, ‘Women Crush Everyday’.
Tutaia plays for the Northern Mystics in the trans-Tasman netball competition and is based in Auckland.
Folau is finalising preparations for his fourth Super Rugby season with the Sydney-based Waratahs.
