No more than 2 'foreigners' on the pitch at any one time

As we know, Bosman or Kolpak captured players do not count as foreigners.

As for qualifying as Bosman or Kolpak, if i recall, Andrew Merhtens (born in Durban) was able to play on a South African passport for Quins, and therefore, despite being an All Black, was playing here as a Saffer.

I suspect that Piuatu is able to qualify for dual-citizenship, and could therefore play for Bristol as a Tongan national, regardless of where he was born.

Which could all mean nothing after Brexit!
