Actually, in this case, I'm not sure if it was the old f**ts in the RFU who dictated no overseas players.

It came from the English Premiership clubs who are terrified about losing players to the big money clubs in France and having to pay higher salaries to keep them so they wanted the rule about no overseas players as an incentive for players to stay in England.

This was all part of the negotiations between the RFU and the clubs.  The RFU didn't want club rugby to be played during the RWC and not picking overseas players was a concession to get this.

I can understand the desire to keep players in England but don't see why it needs to be a hard and fast rule.
