Is anyone able to clarify if lrz parents are Welsh or not? I've read that he has a Welsh nan which would conflict the Welsh parents story. If they are... his eligibility for England should of been a non starter imo

Lol... yes both parents are Welsh, he was born here and lived here until he started attending Hartpury :). I lol as every Welsh player playing in England lately apparently qualifies through a Welsh Nan (even when that’s not the case).

If he has Welsh parents, one would assume he also has welsh grandparents. Probably just a media spin on things as usual trying to make out he’s not actually as welsh as he is....unlike Tompkins who isn’t welsh lol.
