    For New Zealand, Scott Styris and Matthew Sinclair were both born in Australia. They wouldnt make the Aussie team ofcourse but it would lower NZ from 8th equal to a clear 9th place.

    It's sad that people think it is "betraying their home country" by playing elsewhere.

    People can play where and for who the **** they want.

    Hmm, can't think why you'd be of that opinion. Wonder what nationality you might be.

    And don't swear.

    I'll swear if I ****ing feel like it.

    Yes, people of our nationality do tend to be a bit more receptive to the reality that people should not be barred from something purely due to where they happened to be born.

    Nah, there's no rules about not swearing, just avoiding the filter.

    Arguably not 'currently' playing for England but has recently and is on the fringe of the squad.

    Agreed. I doubt he'd be in with any real chance.
