    Force players Wallaby Elligible?

    In the article below it says Force players are not elligible for Wallaby selection as not playing super rugby? I thought they were eligible?


    and Andrew Deegan was in Ireland but is now in Perth (which may as well be Ireland) with Nick Jooste and Jack McGregor (yes – three u20s flyhalves still play in Australia but are ineligible for Wallabies selection because the Force is no longer in Super Rugby).“

    Force players are eligible for the Wallabies. If the wallaby selectors will actually take note of the players and pick them is another story

    No, what were saying is gagger is telling it how it is, not how the agreement is written. To be fair, mack mason will be the next wallabies flyhalf because of politics, not form. They are already talking Foley up as the consistent option to quades "mercurial" As long as consistently crap is the standard, they're right

    As far as Rugby Australia is concerned, the “Wallabies eligibility” crisis with Andrew Forrest’s Indo Pacific Rugby Championship is over. Any player who turns out for the Western Force this season or in future can be considered for Australian Test selection.

    RA deputy chairman Brett Robinson, the man who is heading the negotiations with Forrest over his proposed tournament which grew out of the Force being culled as a Super Rugby franchise last year, confirmed that, from RA’s perspective, the main stumbling block had been dealt with.

    Even Jeremy Thrush?

    But Rod Davies was picked for the Sevens side whilst being a Force player, so yes, they can pick our guys.
