I was reading an article about Bryan and Cameron Redpath the other day and Cameron's choice to represent England. They raised the point that remaining eligible to play for England is a far more attractive proposition in terms of gaining employment as a young professional rugby player.

If Sam Moore was ever going to become non-EQP then Sale almost certainly wouldn't have given him a 5-year contract, Iíd be amazed if there wasnít a clause in his contract to this effect. There is almost no chance he'll represent anyone other England whilst employed by SS. The Welsh can keep their hands off.

Best part of the article for me

ďAs a player in Englandís age-grade teams since the age of 15, he has made a lot of friends along the way and he is hugely comfortable in Saleís set-up.

It's good to see a quality young player enjoying his time in the Sale setup, shows we're doing something well!

It is also great to know someone that highly regarded is at Sale. Not that it should be a surprise, but the exciting thing is each crop of new youngsters could be better. Comparing him to Falatau is high praise indeed.

hes not yet fully tested at senior level, but the junior footage is phenomenal. His carrying into and through contact is outstanding, with good decision making around how/when to offload too. He;s a naturally big lad, so looking forward to seeing him play some more.

and another one:

Apparently looking to bring him into their Six Nations squad, but he's just been named in the England u20s

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story. His strong Welsh roots include his father and uncle being born in England. I've no idea about others in the family but I have not seen any actual evidence from the Welsh press where all this 'Welsh blood coursing in his veins' comes from. I doubt any of them have even tried to find out.

Well his dad and his uncle are both Welsh internationals and Sam was born in Cardiff, so that's pretty Welsh isn't it?

If his Dad and Uncle were both born in England they at least lived in North Wales for most of their early lives.
It's like saying North is English because he was born here but moved to Wales as a kid.

***Edited as repeated Olyy

Good news all the same, fingers crossed we see a lot of him for Sale and England.
