A lot of this could be solved if they hadn't already cheapened the National Jersey. You used to only get a "Cap" if you were picked in the starting XV. If you're only a benchy you shouldn't get a "cap". You don't get a "cap" and you can play for whichever nation you can prove you have heritage.
Allows players to develop anywhere but not force them to make a choice until they are cemented into a national side. Added bonus of making the National Jersey worth something again.
I believe the rule at the moment is that once you step on the field for the national team or the second team eg. Australia A then you are committed to that country for life.
'Caps' make no difference to this issue.
