C. Piatau Kiwi or Tongan ?
Posted by: Albertfromla

Just wondering, having played for the Allblacks, when Charles Piatau joins us next season, will he be classed as a New Zeelander or a Tongan ? (His country of birth) If he is a Kiwi he will be classified as "Foreign" Steven Luatua would also fall into this category. If they have dual citizenship, would that class them as Pacific Islander ? Or not.We also have Luke Morahan (Aussie) classed as "foreign " So if they are "foreign " we would only be able to play any two at any one time. This would also make the signing of more Anzacs questionable.There also seems to be a campaign by some international players, to revert to playing for their country of birth, in time for the next World Cup in 2019.
