    You are the one who made the dumb comment that you struggle to count an Englishmen in the team. Why would I care about the All Blacks, who brought them into the conversation?

    Oh and Tawera Kerr-Barlow, champ.

    The question was already answered. Besides, Goodwin wasn't born in Australia.

    That and he played for WA whilst Social played on the opposite side of the country (which, of course, HB wouldn't have known). That and Goodwin was genuinely quality.

    The people "pillaged" who are very good at rugby are not "South Sea Islanders". "South Sea Islanders" are largely Melanesians (primarily Solomon Islanders) who have been living in Australia for >80 years.

    Pacific Islanders represent a very good playing pool. New Zealand is a Pacific Island. In fact, Maori are Pacific Islanders indigenous to New Zealand. Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, has the largest population of Pacific Islanders in the world.

    Australia also has a very large population of Pacific Islanders. There are more Maori in Perth than there are in Hamilton.

    This is not pillage.

    It is geography.

    Lol you muppets. You quite clearly said "lolololol Aus and NZ get all their rugby players from the Pacific Islands" and when you were proven wrong and your own backyard was questioned you threw your toys because MIGHTY ENGLAND.

    Go play in the traffic.

    One. And, in fact Tawera Kerr-Barlow was born in Australia of Kiwi parents, went to school in NZ. Yeah, he could have played for Australia too, but that's becoming more and more common with a huge and ever growing New Zealand diaspora in Australia.

    And why, indeed, were the All Blacks brought into this conversation? Well, you can ask Cooky Monster to explain that one:

    So, in reality, England have more Pacific Islanders (Tuilagi) playing for them than the All Blacks. For the record, I have no problem with Tuilagi playing for England - he pretty much grew up there, went to school there, learnt his rugby there. However, I do disagree with people stating things as fact when they're speaking out of their jacksie.

    I just can't get over the "South Sea Islanders" thing. Hilarious.
