surprised none of the British army side didn't get selected.
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

I didn't see any mention of a British Army soldier being selected.

It did say in the newspaper article that it was a Fiji Residents XIII . . . which I suggest would bar any British army players

It wasn't a Fiji Residents side as according to this article only 6 players actually came from Fij. The rest of the team play in Oz:-

Interesting to see the reasons given for Lasaro Turagadrau not playing. Apparently he wasn't allowed to leave the country because he hadn't 'settled his account' with the local police!!!
