Special Sabbatical contract which allows him to play a season overseas then come back straight away and play for the ABs...

May be a very stupid question but why are overseas players not allowed to play for their national team?

A clasule in their "team contract" or so?

Meh...[/b]

Looks pretty much how I&#39;d have it. Though, Muliaina is by far our best fullback, MacDonald is very mediocre. I&#39;d still have Cowan at halfback, Kelleher&#39;s a fat slob and Marshall&#39;s a geriatric.

Regan King played one game for the All Blacks against wales in 02?? scoring one try. He was a mean center for Waikato, but injuries (lol) meant he never really carried his form onto super rugby. Playing for the scarlets now??

Yep, he&#39;s a fan favourite in Llanelli and I&#39;d have him in the Welsh national side immediately if he was available and if I was the coach... The one thing he lacks is defence - though with Shaun Edwards as coach, this could be improved. His ability to spot a gap and break the gainline has been superb these past two seasons - definitely our best player bar maybe Stephen Jones...

Kelleher&#39;s a fat slob[/b]
That he is, though he&#39;s been excellent at Toulouse - pushing Ellisalde to 10 (not saying a lot, but that doesn&#39;t really emphasise enough how good he&#39;s been...)

We&#39;ll see this season when both Skrela and Michalak are available. I guess he&#39;ll switch back to 9. Last season Toulouse was short of quality player at 10 especially when Courrent was injured.

This is to avoid massive emigration of top NZ players. This ensures depth locally. It would be very difficult anyway to get players from NH available for SH Test Rugby outside of the so called international windows.

Ah, this is easy. Only pakeha and south sea islanders apply. No need for Maori&#39;s, oh and anyone who has not played for tonga, fiji or samoa must be capped at least once in sevens as to stop them playing for their birth nation. Sorted!

No seriously, it would be..
