There would be very few players, if any, who have Samoa as their first choice if they could also play for the All Blacks or Australia, England etc. The reality is that Samoa is already 2nd choice because the money gap is MASSIVE. Not just in terms of getting paid by the ABs or Samoa but how much more a player can expect/demand from clubs when they have played for the All Blacks or a T1 nation. And it is pretty common knowledge that these players are often the main bread winners for a larger extended family and community so the need to make the best money you can is even greater. Samoan players are not alienated because Nonu played for the Manu. If anything, it puts more weight and pride in the jersey. No integrity is lost whatsoever by the sport simply because any of the players I mentioned earlier represented different countries at different times. And to say the rules are being 'bastardized' when the law itself is less than 20yrs old is a bit rich. The guys at the top of the rugby hierarchy change the laws, some of those lower down the chain say that the law change is adversely affecting them and the reply is 'we shouldn't bastardize the rules!'. Telling high profile players to help by being anything else except players is like having a mechanic look at your broken down car and telling him to give it good clean inside, change the tyres and wipers but don't work on the engine. Let them do their work where they best know how to.
