Three England internationals who represented other countries
Three England internationals that have represented two nations at senior level.
1. Jamie Salmon
Salmon’s own rugby journey is particularly unique. Rejected by Kent U19s after leaving school, he decided to travel to New Zealand and within a year had been selected by Wellington’s provincial side.
He was then selected for New Zealand’s tour to Europe in the autumn of 1981 and won all his three All Black caps on that tour. He made his full New Zealand debut against Romania in Bucharest and played in both tests against France.
Salmon returned to England at the end of the 1983 New Zealand season having made 64 appearances for Wellington. He made his England international debut on 1 June 1985 against his former team, New Zealand, in Christchurch, losing 18-13. His last appearance for England was in the 1987 Rugby World Cup against Wales in Brisbane, losing 16-3.
In total he won twelve caps for England in addition to his three for New Zealand
