For something so simple it really is impressive that you still haven't been able to figure it out. Either that or you're incredibly stubborn. If you can't see the difference between players choosing a country over New Zealand compared to players playing for a heritage country when not selected by NZ then there's no point in the conversation continuing until you wrap your head around it. They are two different scenarios, you can bang your head against the wall saying they're the same as much as you want but they're quite clearly not. It's weird that the fact there's a difference even needs to be explained. It's also funny that you're trying to paint people as just defending everything NZRL does as being right yet your argument fell to the juvenile point of well Maguire is the coach and he said it's OK emoji etc.
