Julian Huxley looks set to play his last game on Australian soil for the Melbourne Rebels next week against the Reds after he applied to the ARU for an early release.
Huxley has been told by the Rebels that he will not be required next season and it is believed that he is being chased by French club Narbonne who are coached by his former Brumbies teammate Justin Harrison.
The thirty-two-year-old battled his way back to playing rugby after he was injured playing for the Brumbies in 2008 whilst tackling James Horwill and went into spasms and a subsequent scan revealed he had brain cancer.
Huxley then spent two years fighting for his life but he looks back on the time positive thoughts as he says he was the good luck story.
"There are over 1400 new cases a year and 1000 end in death, so I'm really in the minority in terms of how lucky I have been," Huxley said.
Huxley's final game for the Rebels in Australia will be overshadowed by the celebrations for former Wallabies captain Stirling Mortlock who will also be playing his last game for the Rebels in Australia next week.
"It's crept up on me, the fact that this will be my last game in Australia," Huxley told The Australian.
"I might get a bit emotional.
"I'm happy for the spotlight to be on Stirling."
"He can have it and he deserves it. For a large part of my career I've been disappointed I haven't been a better player, but this is my 12th year of rugby and I guess I've been good enough to hang around that long."
Huxley has won nine Wallaby Test caps and so far has won 78 Super Rugby caps over the 12 year span in which he played for the Brumbies, Reds then Brumbies again before moving last year to the Rebels.
The Rebels, Huxley and Mortlock play the Reds next week then travel to South Africa where they face the Lions and finish their season against the Stormers.
