Rugby Australia is considering a radical amendment to Lay ghetto, which regulates the “hostability” of players working abroad. The thing was up in the air, because already in this rugby tournament, Dave Rennie has been allowed to take advantage of two “exceptions”, namely to be able to call up two overseas fighters even if they both have less than 60 caps for the national team.

We are now working on how to adapt the eligibility rules. We need to be able to choose from the largest possible group and make sure we have the best players. Available to play week after week.”
