GM, nicely worded reply. Yes l have heard of residency rules etc, but l firmly believe it has gone too far, and England is probably one of the worst at excluding truly English players for players who honestly aren’t appreciably better. IMHO of course.
I’ve only ever been wrong once; l thought l was wrong, but l was wrong!

5 years residency may still be a bit short BUT in the transient global world we live (though not ATM ;) ) I think it is fair.

Maybe you should have a wider look at other countries - not England -who are positively encouraging/recruiting non-nationals to move countries ??

And how do you sort out NZ/Aus re. Pacific Islanders and inter-familial ties ?? Very tricky (and a legal minefield)
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

Sorry not sure what the argument is here. JP is an Italian international therefore no eligibility for the British lions. Don’t recall anyone making a fuss that Parisse couldn’t be selected.
