To be honest, even if they get citizenship in another country they should still have to represent the country they first nominated.Also, why are people on here still using the term "such and such wasn't BORN in NSW/QLD??? It has NEVER been birth or Origin, are people here confused or ignorant?
Coxy, while I disagree with your opinion that we should let NZ born players play Origin, I do agree that it's as simple as signing a piece of paper at a certain age (17 seems a good number off the top of my head), and unless said player gets citizenship in another country (not ALREADY hold dual citizenship), that's their State/Country forever.
I could almost stomach a right to appeal to an international tribunal to change allegiance under the proviso that they had not yet represented the country they signed to be aligned to. But that would still open up the potential for people to switch allegiance simply because they get approached by someone else - which is really what the whole problem is about.
My belief that NZ reps should, if qualified under QLD/NSW eligibility, play Origin would still be a possible future addition under this "sign your allegiance" plan, it would just only apply to players registering from that point on. I think in time, given Australia's growing multi-ethnicity, people will realise state allegiance isn't intertwined with Australian allegiance, but I don't think people are "there" yet.
As usual I'm about 5-10 years ahead of the game.
