I wish the example of this law was for someone who contributed to medicine or science in an exemplary way, and not simply rugby.
I understand the audience of this thread, but i hate how athletes are placed on the pedestal and we don't acknowledge those who quietly contribute so much more to society.
I can't think of too many occupations that are as effected by a natural non-inclination to be resident for 4 years. Perhaps medical volunteers to overseas charities? Generally though, in both medicine or science, an expat is going to be thinking about qualifying for a different passport.
Completely understand your thinking all the same.
