Some teams such as South Africa started to make their catchment teams their u20 sides so that in this way all players who played for their age group side will be tied to their country and can’t possibly become a project player in another country. This to me was a great idea. Now I hear the rule has been changed and that you cant do this anymore. I wonder in who’s best interest it was to change this rule if someone can please verify it for us. So let’s use an example. Reports about a young Stormers Lock that I have recently touted in the 2023 thread as a future Springbok has surfaced. Cobus Wiese. It states that he is on his way to Saracens. Yes the same one the has just been penalized by their own league for salary breaches. He played in the u20 World Cup and should be tied to South Africa, or can this law change have something to say about that? Regardless of the above case scenarios with Cobus Wiese, will this law change encourage other nations to buy project players in the future? Since nations such as South Africa would not be able to tie their players via their u20 team anymore and would have to resort to a b team for Catchment which is rarely used.
