  1. Well yes, Auz have done it a few times.For Eg: Patricio Noriega; Clyde Rathbone; Daniel Vickerman; Radike Samo; Tiaan Strauss are players who grew up elsewhere & ended up playing for Auz.NZ did it with Sione Lauaki & Sitiveni Sivivatu. England, however, takes the cake in this respect.Dylan Hartley, Riki Flutey; Shontayne Hape; Matt Stevens; Stuart Abbott; Thomas Waldrom; Manu Tuilagi; Brad Barritt; Hendre Fourie; Mouritz Botha; Mike Catt & soon Ernst Joubert; are just some that come to mind.

  2. He moved here when he was 12 and had granparents here and he sings the national anthem with more passion than most apparant english players

  3. I like the way England entise players abroad with huge paychecks, to play club Rugby there. Then they have the audacity to pick this Samoan as an England international. He wasn’t even in the Country legally in the 1st place.
