And there's a pic around of Benji in a Junior Kangaroos shirt.

 

No, Papalii has never played for the Kiwis. He moved to Australia/Queensland when he was 6.

 

I hope he plays next weekend, but I agree, it's unlikely.

He moved at aged 6? sounds like he has passed the three years in the country to become an Aussie.

How long did Chris Heighington live in England?

Rangi is a good traditional English name like Fa'asavalu is.

I have no problem with it.

Australia and NZ are countries built on immigration, they are bound to have residents born elsewhere that qualify for their adopted country.

Have to agree with this as both countries have used the full letter of the eligibility laws over the years.
