    It only seems like a huge jump NOW. But we start letting blokes like Taumalolo play Origin, and Ponga play for NZ, which is what these people are calling for and you watch how slippery that slope gets 10, 15, 20 years from now.

    Fittler, a current Origin coach, believes Radley should be able to play for NSW, Australia and England. See what happens when that becomes common place.

    Meh how die-hard was he if he chose to forfeit playing for NSW?

    What? No. Birth has never really come into the equation for Origin. Otherwise Sterlo would have played for QLD and Billy Moore would never have made those Blues sides to get a game.

    My take is that if someone satisfies all the eligibility prerequisites, other than having to declare to play for Australia, they should still be able to play.
    AVA, Sultan Pepper and Cribbage like this.
