Can't remember if it was wrt the Transfer clause or a slightly earlier review of Reg 8 but I do remember the PI Player Welfare Ass'n stating that removing the grandparent rule would significantly reduce the player pool for all the PI.
Maybe they forecast that out forward because I can’t name any PI wallabies who aren’t first or second generation, if there are it isn’t many. Maybe NZ has a few.
In either case the grandparent rule shouldn’t apply for the sake of switching nations once capped. Only way players should be allowed to switch nations after they’re already capped is through their own birth location, or parents.
