I know there is a lot of unrest about McNamara picking Chase but one of the things that has really stood out for me is the number of players the big two have in there squads who are not actually playing for their country of birth either.
I would be interesting to see England playing an Australian or a NZ side for that matter that just had born and bred Kiwi's and Aussies in it and did not include the best pickings from the other nations around them.
Here's a few examples:
Jarryd Hayne played for Fiji in the last world cup
Josh Papalii a Kiwi playing for Australia
James Tamou a Kiwi playing for Australia
Sam Moa a Tongan playing for NZ
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck a Samoan playing for NZ
Manu Vatuvei Tongan playing for NZ
Josh Hoffman Aussie playing for NZ
If the England and Spanish National football teams took the same stance they would be Finalists in every tournament too.
