    Who could you play for?

    This thread is a complete swipe from Planet Rugby, but I thought it might be interesting to know which other countries CW posters would be eligible for were they Rugby Union internationals. Cricket's qualification is pretty dull, basically being either born in the country, a national of that country or having resided in a country for four years. Rugby Union's criteria is a bit broader & therefore more interesting IMHO; under Regulation 8.1 of the IRB's code it states one is eligible for a country in which

    a) a he/she was born; or

    b) one parent or grandparent was born; or

    c) he/she has completed thirty six months of residence immediately preceeding the time of playing


    So basically if you have a parent or grandparent from elsewhere or have lived somewhere for 3 years you qualify for that country as well as your "own" country under Union's rules.

    I qualify for:

    1) England (by birth & residence) &
    2) Ireland (by my maternal grandfather being born in Ireland).


    Anyone else?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Afraid I'm very dull, En-ger-land all the way.

    Though I'm about 5 months into a Welsh residency if it could be based on holidays.

    New Zealand and England. Seeing as I hold dual citizenship I could play cricket for either as well.

    Do you have to have kiwi/English parents to hold dual citizenship? Is there some kind of qualification residence period you have to go through?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Both my parents are English and moved here when they got married, so I also have dual citizenship.
