It's like a grand genetic experiment, getting the biggest legends in world rugby to plant their seed in the local population and see what happens.

Magnificent stuff.

One of the main reasons playing at U20 level shouldn't be taken as binding you to that country.

Fortunate for you that pommy genes are so recessive.

It is, in some circumstances, see Rialtoblue above.
Kids don't have much choice as to where they're brought up and educated, and for example, Lynagh's kid may consider himself an Ocker even if he talks with the plumiest of plummy accents. Being allowed to stay in a country's system until U 20 before having to make up your mind finally seems fair to me.

Didn't Moriarty win an U20 world cup as an Englishman before turning Leekist to qualify for a Lions call up?

It is however their choice to put themselves up for selection or not.

Hello mate. Been very busy with my new job ("new" as I hit my first anniversary next week), so not able to get on the bored as often.

Big refereeing weekend for me, I have Mystic River vs NYAC!

That photo is a classic for poaching discussions.

The presence of 8 players from Harlequins suggests the old adage (from the amateur rugby era) that the best way to get an England trial was to go training with Harlequins might still apply.

Saw him play a few times when he was with Kenilworth RFC. Looked useful in the minis.

:lol: :thumbup:



:nod:

Moriarty was born in St Helens, Merseyside while his father, former Wales international Paul Moriarty, was in the north of England playing rugby league. Moriarty is also the nephew of former Wales international captain Richard Moriarty.

He was educated at Glyncollen Primary School and Morriston Comprehensive School in Swansea, Wales. He took up rugby union at the age of ten playing for Swansea Schools and West Wales Schools. He also played his junior rugby at Gorseinon RFC

Wales actually haven't lost to England in a long time now. We had a tough defeat against the Harlem globe trotters in February. Nice white kit they had with a cool cabbage for a badge.
