Struggling with a couple of positions, and haven't included the Nigerian contingent - Harriman, Ubogu , Ojomoh, Adedayo etc....

But not a bad side.

Kieran Bracken at 9. Shaw at 5.

Yeah, but I was trying to think of more clear cut foreign born...not just actually born with very limited time in that country

I forgot Flutey aswell.

I think one or both Brackens parents were Irish anyway if that helps.

If you are asking the players, they were mistakes, if you would believe otherwise, then they are lies. They were not capped by Wales until they were at the ends of their careers, so I know what I believe. Wink

Great shout on Benazzi. Hadn't considered the French Africans, which also could bring in Betsen (Cameroon). Pretty sure there've been a couple of others.

Had no idea about Jordi Murphy, and we can add Charlie Sharples (born Hong Kong) to the side.

John Barclay was born in Hong Kong as well.

Wayne Barnes has had a few caps for Wales and he was born in England. In fairness though he did go to school in Wales. Interestingly most of his caps have come against Ireland.

If you're born in an army base aren't you born on sovereign land of that particular nation rather the soil upon where it resides in?

FA

Military bases are still considered to be on the land of the country they are in. It's only embassies that are considered sovereign land of the 'owning' country.

I know in America if you're born in a US military base its counted as being born in the USA itself (assuming your parent(s) is in the military). I guess its for some yes, for others no.
