Ok, lets put it down to terrible journalism, shall we? A repeat of the Gordon Fifita 'Tongan dual-registration international signs for Dewsbury' epic, then. Just to remind you, Mr Fifita appeared to not actually exist and there was certainly no record of him having played either code of rugby at international leve. I'd suggest that the press are guilty of dreadful research, or they're being fed facts by someone who doesn't know their bottom from their elbow.



Yep, I think you're right. It is terrible journalism from which RL seems to suffer more than most nowadays, sadly.

Believe what you see, don't see what you believe.

I think your right, I'm sure I heard that story. Still, its extremely odd that a player from a Kolpak nation wasn't able to gain a work permit with an EU country? Oh well, ho hum....

He was New Zealand born if im not mistaken which would have meant he did need a permit.
