Allow players to change countries !

If a player has once played for the ABs (whatever), then spends 3 years out of international rugby, they should be allow to play for whom they want to after this period based on residency qualifications.

Thus Doug Howlett and Nick Evans could play for England, both have being playing for the English clubs, and come RWC 2011 they will have completed 3 years standown.

I guess this would be good for England and Pacific Nations, not so good for Scotland, Wales or Ireland. As they dont have professional rugby competitions to attract ex ABs and the like.

Kinda see why the IRB motion failed !
