He's already been claimed by Tonga.

Ahh, that explains the flag sticking out of his ###### then.

How do you explain the shadows? And the flag waving? It looks like a mock up to me.

Willie Manu doesn't actually play in England. He plays in the Nevada desert.

Are Ellis, Burgess & Widdop not in the squad?? Plus why has it been picked already rather than in a few months time?


I would imagine that a casual answer to the second question you pose is that McNamara has got F-all else to do and toying with stupidity like the inclusion of Manu is something that he can do to get some press coverage for his R/L Guardianista type of job.................... As someone stated "the rep game is becoming a joke", furthermore it also seems that a clown has been installed to lead the show. mad.gif

Btw, I forgot that Lennox Lewis, Ruzeski (?), Pieterson & Hape are all English. biggrin.gif ... Hang on!... No they're not! Oh! It seems loads of sports 'bend' the rules. Who'd have thunk it?...

I'm not saying it's right, as it's not, but still don't see how this is much different from other sports. Especcially when athletics used to 'fast track' citazenship?...

I just don't see why he needs him with The likes of Ellis, Burgess, Joel Tompkins, Ben Westwood & BJB available for selection.

Oops! I didn't realise! Well, I think most people accept Lewis & Pieterson as 'English' (even if they don't realise Lennox is actually English). Where as the others, well... biggrin.gif

No matter where you sit on the eligibility fence, truth is, Manu ain't good enough.

Did Rusedski ever represent Canada at tennis? Wasn't Rusedski's mother from Keighley? So he'd qualify under the parent/grandparent rule. Did Pieterson ever play cricket for SA? He'd qualify under the residential rule. Hape would also qualify under the residential rule and has never played RU for another nation (even though it's a joke). The reverse of the Fa'asavalu situation.

He's not English....end of. If he does somehow get picked to play then he is depriving an Englishman of a chance to play for his country.
