Australia could scrap ‘Giteau’s Law’ after poor World Cup
Please let us know whether you agree.
Australia are reviewing”Giteau’s Law”, which governs that foreign-based players are allowed to play for the Wallabies, after a poor World Cup.
Under present rules, the sole foreign-based players Australia can select are those with more or 60 caps.
Players like centre Samu Kerevi (33 caps) and lock Adam Coleman (38 caps) are no more eligible having joined clubs overseas after the tournament.
Australia were knocked out of the World Cup by England in the past eight years.
Boss Michael Cheika stepped with coach Dave Rennie appointed on Wednesday.
Rugby Australia is weighing the necessity to ensure players remain available for the Wallabies, having a desire to continue to keep its Super Rugby sides as powerful as you can by slowing down the stream of talent overseas.
“Every rugby fan wishes to see Super Rugby teams become successful, they need their personalities playing within their Superb Rugby group,” said Rugby Australia chief executive Raelene Castle.
“So it is a larger conversation than just Wallabies victory, it’s about making sure we’ve got the ideal players playing within our Super Rugby franchises too.”
So as to choose Drew Mitchell and France-based Matt Giteau to the 2015 World Cup, where the Wallabies reached the 39, australia formerly refused to select players earning their living overseas, however introduced the principle.
If they removed their Evaluation selection limitations earlier this season, going on to win their next World Cup world champions South Africa achieved instant success.
