Wouldn't that reset Kara's eligibility..
I believe he got caught under the 5 year requirement as he moved to Aus post 2017 (2020).
He wouldn't be eligible until 2025 (he will be almost 29 at the next World Cup)
He will play for Tonga - maybe even go to Moana if he gets released from the last year of his Brumbies contract (which I doubt)
Yeah I knew he was 5 years we should let him go play for Tonga and still allow him to play for the Brumbies.
These players not back to have a crack in Moana Pasifika are they? Just been wondering with a couple turning back up in NPC, I bloody hope so, makes it worth the effort of having them in Super I think.
Lachlan Miller looks set to sign with the Cronulla Sharks:
Most of his background was in league before joining the 7's program so it's not too surprising, but I do think it's interesting that the Gilitini's were talking to him but the Tahs weren't.
Yeah, that's fair. I'm not suggesting the should have picked him up, certainly not at any great expense, but there is a need for experienced backs and I sort of expected they'd be talking to (not necessarily signing) just about anyone they could at the moment. It's probably the mention of the Giltinis in particular that made it interesting - how much of their forward planning has moved away from what Coleman would have been putting in place? That said it may have more to do with Hoiles' experience with the 7s setup in this situation.To play where? He was a league halfback and I'm not sure where he'd fit in playing XVs.
He's also 27.
Would have been a weird player for the Tahs to chase on anything more than a minimum contract (which I'm guessing he wasn't keen on). Even then, it probably wouldn't have been a good option.
