I know this is recycling the subject as it was brought up in the past, but the said cross code international Gordon Fifita didn't apparently fit the criteria for a visa neither, why is it that when we try sign a Pacific Islander who needs to apply for a visa, they never fit the criteria to actually get a visa to come over here?
It's the rules Kelsey! To get a visa for a sports player they need to be demonstrably better than an equivalent British/European player, unless they come from a Kolpak country when they are given greater license. In general terms if you've played a significant number of games for your country in recent years then you stand a good chance of getting a visa.
Despite the paranoia of those with whom you speak these rules aren't actually applied to penalise Dewsbury and no-one else.
