Rangi Chase

Has he joined St George?

If so where does this leave his England career? I thought he said he was here to stay?

I beleive his visa wont get renewed due to a conviction so has to go home at the end of his contract anyway

sure some cas fans can shed some light on it

Hope so and I hope he never soils the England shirt again.

Average player made to look good by the dross he played with at club level, no business playing for England, a, No England player should require a visa and b, He's just not good enough.

I'm sure the managers of the various bars at Xscape will be hoping he stays, He probably accounts for a significant portion of their sales bonus.

Two questions come to mind here.

Does a residential qualification lapse if a player is no longer resident?

If it is the case that he wont get his visa renewed how has he managed to play for England in the past? It seems his current visa only covers him to play for cas hence the collapse of the Hull move so presumably it wouldnt cover him to play for England. Do different rules apply for international games, i assume the players are paid so a visa would be required?

Pretty sure Sam Tomkins was up against him,at the time Sam was very unpopular with players over his cheating(holding arms/legs of players)which he has eliminated from his play since.So they did get it wrong

Idiot? Charming

This is a funny thread.

Twelve months ago the guy would have walked into nearly any team in the world and now he's rubbish? Give me a break.

As for those who didn't like him playing for England - I thought they had all finished with the game?

The intention was not to rubbish RC at all. I read on twitter that he had joined St George but couldn't find any confirmation anywhere.

It just struck me as at odds with what he said when picked for England last year.

He's not in the Telegraphs NRL Club Players roundup of arriving and leaving! reprinted today but looks the same

http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/nrl-2013-player-movement/story-e6frexnr-1226487361253

I read somewhere recently that he was in negiotions with an NRL Club but was still happy to stay at Castleford if nothing happend

Though with Matty Elliot now at NZ Warriors and looking for players, he may give him a once over

Should never have won MOS

MOS is picked on opinion not yours or mine but the opinion of all the players n they chose in there own opinion that rangi chase was the best player they had either played with or against in that season end of.

And for those that say he only got it because players disliked tomkins are fools it was a 3 horse race n wasnt the 3rd player roby? Then they must dislike roby aswel do they?

he'll still be eligible for england selection even if he goes to st george

But if he has visa issues will he get back in the UK?

I thought it was stretching it a bit to select him but if he was remaining in the UK, then maybe it could be justified. This suggests it might not be so straightforward.

Can't believe some of the bile being thrown at Rangi Chase simply because he played for England (and it is just that).

He got picked for MOS by his peers in a three horse race. Regardless of whether people think Tomkins should have been it or not, that still makes him ate sat the second best player that year. That makes him significantly better than average. He got voted above Roby, that makes him class.

He got into the Opta team of the year in 2012 after only playing half of the season. He literally carries Cas. He is not average by any definition, and he'd get into ANY team in the league, even better than established stars like McGuire and Briers.

So for anyone calling him average, you really need to put up a far better argument than "he looks good because Cas are cr**.

He shouldn't have been picked for England because he needs a visa to work in this country. We now have the embarrassing situation where he's going to be kicked out of the country he's represented!

If he was actually English, people wouldn't be saying half the things they have about him.

And the majority of SL players apparently.

You're telling me you wouldn't have Rangi at your club?

I was dead set against Maurie Fa'asavalu playing GB but we were told that Tony Smith had looked him in the eye and Maurie was sincere about representing his adopted Nation, guess what, he was back representing Sama within two years.

I was/am dead set against Willie Manu playing for England, add Chris Heighington & Feleti Mateo to that but I'm not about to criticise their ability or character assassinate any of them so your assertion that Rangi is criticised because he played for England hold no water.

Im not going to create a big fuss over Chases MoS award either, he just about deserved it in a year when there seemed to be few absolute stand out players who'd consistently caught the eye.

He had his day in the sun and has since been found wanting in many aspects including his conduct off the field, his conduct on the field, his ability to play at a higher level, he's offered poor value to his team, caused trouble for his new Coach in his vital first year and his constant "come and get me" media articles are unedifying to say the least.

See ya Rangi, don't let the door hit you on the way out!

I'm telling you that I'd be mortified if my club signed Rangi Chase, the last thing we need is the circus that seems to follow him around and for every good thing he brings he'd erase something positive.

You're right. Rangi Chase should never have been picked by England.

He should have found a distant Welsh ancestor.
