Bradman Best qualifies for Wales through the heritage rule. Don't know how specifically.

The article I saw was unclear if he reached out to Wales, but someone let it be known.

Umyla Hanley is an 18 year old fullback at Wigan and the son of Ellery Hanley who is of Jamaican descent. I think Umyla might qualify through the grand parent rule.

Don't ask me how to pronounce his name.

I reckon they should do away with the grand parent rule- parent fair enough but grand parent seems a bit of a stretch imho.

NRL clubs need to release players for international duty, they’re the ones driving the Aus and NZ boycott as they don’t want the NRL compromised next year. Id be surprised to see any NRL frontline players involved

The clubs are so full of it. It's not unheard of for international players to join pre-season training in the new year.
