- England's top rugby administrator insisted Friday he had no plans to follow France by tightening eligibility criteria after Denny Solomona became the latest player called up by the Six Nations champions on residency grounds. Solomona, a New Zealand-born former Fiji rugby league international, was included in England's squad for their upcoming tour of Argentina. The 23-year-old only became a rugby union player in December but has served the three-year residency qualification required by World Rugby. Amid concerns of a player drain from financially poor nations, France said they would stop selecting non-French players qualified under the three-year rule. But English rugby's chief executive Ian Ritchie said England had no plans to do the same. "I was aware of the French doing that and had discussions with them about that. That’s a matter for the FFR," he said.
