Overseas players. : Sun Sep 11, 2022 11:44 am  
I was just wondering about the criteria for overseas players , my question being about Lachlan Lam , I don’t think he was born in this Country, but I’m not sure , what I do know is he played for Wigan St Pats in his very early years , would this playing for ST Pats not help him become exempt as an overseas player .?
As I said I’m not sure about the ruling .

They have to play about 3 years for a European affiliated professional club before they're no longer eligible for U21's

After Brexit we have moved to non-fed instead of a mixture of overseas and non-fed. 7 is the allowance in Super League and the rest is as Mick stated.

The example they normally wheel out is Gareth Widdop who is British but did his apprenticeship in Australia so to speak, and is classed as non-fed.

Lachlan was born in Sydney, 3 years before Adrian signed for Wigan.

It seems that the club are trying to get Lachlan off the overseas quota. They have formally applied to the RFL to have him removed due to the fact he spent time playing in Wigan when his dad was there. Hopefully it works,it would be massive if they could. No harm trying. You don’t ask, you don’t get.

This is why i made the post ,I was told we had been in touch with ST Pats a couple of weeks ago , to get a couple of rules verified , hopefully it could work in our favour .

You may possibly have given them the idea to do so Charlie. Hopefully it’s a good outcome. Well done to you sir if that is the case and we get the result.

Looks like fortunately St Pats have saved Leyth a quota spot.
