    Honestly don't think he cares,
    Scotland was only ever a pay cheque/way to play international rugby for him and he's been pretty open about it - stayed there long enough to get residency and then left when his contract was up. Said he had no interest in ever playing or living in Scotland again

    If that’s his attitude then, honest or not, good riddance.

    What a bellend A mercenary hired by Scotland

    Scots are the worst side in Int'l rugby in exploiting the 3yr rule

    Team is full of Mercenaries from SA I hope they get their arses kicked in RWC

    Don't know which I despise more: Japan or Scotland with their fake players &

    mercenaries polluting the game and comprising Rugby's integrity

    If they played the way you wanted them to, and held themselves to a higher standard than more or less every other team in the tournament (Let's be honest, if SA or Argentina could attract good enough players to their clubs it'd happen there too) they would get their arses kicked. Integrity is bollix!

    SA and especially ARG rugby would not allow themselves to be degraded and diluted with

    2nd rate Journeymen players It's a shame that the Scots and Irish as well are so willing to dilute

    their national side with "Project Players" who are nothing more than Mercenaries and opportunists

    You're straight wrong pal. If they had the financial clout and the players were there they'd use it too. Strange tirady your on.

    ARG rugby doesn't have the money but even if they did

    It would NEVER allow themselves to import SA NZ PI born players, play for the Jaguares

    with the aim of playing for the Pumas

    SA rugby have enough players that they also have to never resort to the disgraceful

    actions that Scots and Irish rugby engage in


    Some things are more priceless than money

    Irish & Scots rugby are just shameless in hiring 2nd rate Mercenaries

    New Zealand have done it, England do it, France do it... Of course those two would if they could. International rugby isn't about what country's people are the best rugby it's about what country's union puts out the best sides while complying by the rules. Why would anyone handicap themselves?

    I mean, other than, you know, their most capped prop ever

    Thanks for playing also special mention for “some things are more priceless than money” which did make me chuckle.

    The residency rule is increasing to 5 years so hopefully we should see fewer of his ilk.

    Agreed. And don’t think he necessarily stands above other options we have in that area, especially with the like of Fagerson coming through

    That won't do anything Just means clubs especially the scummy French sides

    will just import Fijian and SA players as teenagers & make them eligible under their JIFF system

    Personally I'd make it a 10 year residency rule & try and scrap the Grandparent eligibility rule

    Not sure if there would be legal challenges to the Granny rule though

    In a globalised world, removing the grandparent rule would be a huge step back, especially for mixed race people such as myself who are becoming far more commonplaelce

    Beast is the exception to the rule A strong anomaly TBH

    Zimbabwe at the time was a a social and economic basket case Total failed state

    with no serious rugby team to boot So I'm comfortable with Beast playing for SA


    Funny how you skirt over Scottish Rugby importing 2nd rate Saffa though......

    I disagree

    In a world that's change drastically in last 30 years relying on where a granny was born a 100 years ago is absurd

    Parent's place of birth is enough of a determining factor for heritage along with where you were raised and educated

    I want to eliminate 2nd rate journeymen Mercenaries shopping around for Int'l caps and Appearances fees on top

    The latest disgrace is Pieter Hermias Conerlius Lappies Labuschagne being selected to play for Japan

    I consider such actions to be a form of cheating and bring the sport into disrepute

    Hence I hope Japan, France, Italy and Scotland get battered in the upcoming RWC

    Why do you not come at england? Hughes is the biggest mercenary there is, turned down calls from fiji for England caps later. And where do you stand on shields? Pretty sure cockanasiga could also play for fiji, many players have multiple countries.
