Best team possible for these countries...

Postby JWSaunders » Mon, 31 Aug 2020, 11:51

With rugby eligibility laws potentially being loosened similar to RL, I was wondering if we can perhaps create the best team possible for each of these nations- Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands, Niue, Spain, Portugal, Zimbabwe, Hong Kong and Germany

The point of this is to see how competitive these teams could be if they had access to some now available players. Eligibility rules for a player is not making an appearance for their national team for a minimum of 3 years (Use this considering the next would cup is in 2023) and also having ancestry to that country eg birth or parents/grandparents
Some examples-
Rene Ranger NZL -> COK
Toby Flood ENG -> GER
Mike Williams ENG-> ZIM
Irae Simone NZL-> NIU
Jordi Murphy IRE-> ESP
Nathan Earle ENG-> HK

In our case the guys that could potentially be eligible are Murphy as you say, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Damian de Allende, Guilhem Guirado and Lucas Paulos. There are probably some French and Argentinians, but it's hard to do such a XV or squad without the chance to properly check where their ancestors were born.
