Kevin Sinfield says he is ready to play this weekend should Yorkshire Carnegie head coach Bryan Redpath select the former Leeds Rhinos captain in his squad to face Bedford in the Championship.
The 35-year-old started training with Carnegie last week, less than three weeks on from completing the treble with the Rhinos at Old Trafford.
And although Sinfield conceded he needs time to get used to the code change, he would love to make his union debut on Saturday.
Sinfield began his league career at loose forward before moving to stand-off, a position which mirrors fly-half in union, and Redpath confirmed Sinfield will play at 10 and take over the kicking duties straight away.
Sinfield left rugby league as Leeds' most successful captain and the club's record points scorer but he is still highly motivated to continue his success as a rugby player.
Carnegie are likely to attract their biggest crowd of the season - currently 2,373 - when Sinfield makes his first appearance for the club at Headingley, which is likely to be against London Welsh on November 27.
And Sinfield has urged rugby fans in Leeds to get behind Carnegie and join their journey back to the Premiership.
