    How can Jarryd Hayne be eligible for Australia ? he decided he was Fijian during the World Cup so he should be made to lie in that bed for the rest of his representative career. It's a joke.

    Disagree. If that was the case you'd never get any big names playing for the minnows.

    Ummm.....that's why they are minnows.

    The international eligibility rules for RL are a farce, and it'll never be taken seriously as a sport while they keep running out "international" sides chock full of Aussies and Kiwis. If Hayne wasn't good enough to crack the Australian side for the RLWC and he chooses to play for Fiji because his grandmothers' second cousin's next door neighbour once holidayed there, then that should be his choice for life. Would make them think about it  more seriously if they got fair dinkum. Why bother even having a RLWC if it is just 4 fair dinkum sides and then the rest are made up of offcasts from the Aussie side ?
