While he remains eligible to represent the Eagles, Salanoa will be qualified to play for Ireland in September on three-year residency. Assuming he is not selected before January 1, he would then be required to wait until September 2022 to play for Ireland under the new five-year criteria.

I don't believe that is accurate. He will continue to remain eligible in the interim period, surely?

If he stays in Ireland, he stays illegible once he has that three years on his belt.
World Rugby’s Regulation 8 (3)
"They have lived in the country for 36 consecutive months (three years) to qualify on residency immediately before playing."

If he leaves for longer than that infamous 6 or 8 weeks per year, he's not eligible any more and the then 5 years count starts.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.
