Weird indeed. The journalist Duncan Johnston could at least have done some homework before having a rant though!!

That said it is an interesting point made and for some, could be an attractive way to represent the nation of their birth. The same argument could be made over here for the Vunipolas, Nathan Hughes, Dylan Hartley(!) if they started making the same noises.

He's right, once you've made your bed, you've got to lie in it, which that was more or less the whole point of the tightening of the rules following the likes of Shane Howarth et al switching countries.

It raises the question though, does the 'International Representation slate' become wiped clean should a player switch to what is essentially a completely different sport?
