I personally don't have an issue with the bolded bit ... and i liked the initial change where if the player wasn't selected by Australia they were free to play for the nation of their descent ... but IMO, they've taken it too far, where they can play Origin, then choose which nation they want to represent.
Take the choice away, and we sort it out. Either they don't play Origin and are not eligible, this bit is important, take the choice away, or they play Origin, but still have to play for their own nations.
Either way, Australia needs to stop being allowed to pick Islanders at the detriment of the International game. There are lots of solutions, but some sacrifice of the biggest nation in the sport need to be made.
