Dont kwow how good he is so ignore that for the moment. Does this imply that you can play oigin and represent a country other than Australia?

I think because he played SOO in 2009, he can probably switch from Oz to England

It would be very interesting to see. If he would pick England before Aus if he was given the choice.

does'nt matter if he played in 2009 or 2012....under RLIF laws playing state of origin means ###### all

This was an Australian interpretation. Many players did not realise there was nothing in the federation rules to prevent them playing Origin as well as tests for a different country.
The emphasis in the search for a solution was on Australia, "because it is an Australian issue".

For example, Warriors star Feleti Mateo could represent Tonga at next year's world cup even if he achieves his ambition of playing for New South Wales. It's only once he plays for the Kangaroos that he would then be ineligible.

"The reality is that Feleti has played for Tonga and he remains, at this stage, a Tongan international as long as he doesn't play an international for any other country that he qualifies for," Carter said.

Mateo is a great player - be good to see him play for Tonga - they'll all be big lads, that's for sure.

He did, and Tonie Carroll played for Queensland then New Zealand (followed by a few games for Australia later on in his career if you can work that one out!)

"Rugby League is rugby in the simplest form in the sense that it's about great defence, great tackling technique, good handling, good passing, catching and great kicking."

Not needed, England have plenty of genuine England born forwards.
