Yes if you accept a cap from England, England 7s or the official second XV - Saxons  - you are captured for life and cannot play for another senior xv.

Note even if you just sit on the bench and do not get on, you are still captured.

The list of official second XVs is here.
Not sure how long it has been there though.

Appreciate that you used Cameron Redpath simply as a hypothetical example, but i do think that we'll see a lot of him in an England shirt.  Not necessarily this summer, but certainly in the future.


I agree and hope Cameron goes on to have a successful England career. It just seems crazy that you can spend 2 or is it 3 years in a country and suddenly you can play for that country under residence, but get one cap for a country and you are forbidden for your whole career from ever representing another that you may have been born in/have parents from.

I disagree. It means the player has to make a decision and stick with it. To have players chopping and changing countries makes a mockery of international teams. You may as well do away with International sides and just replace them with clubs.....something some Premiership teams would love to happen.
