Toby Flood and six other players who could have played for Germany instead

5. Paul Hill

Although born in Aschaffenburg, Germany, the prop was raised in Doncaster and played his junior rugby at Doncaster Knights, before moving to Yorkshire Carnegie’s academy, making his senior debut in 2014. On 17 April 2015 he joined Northampton Saints in 2015 and has since won six England caps.


6. Rory Clegg 

Clegg was born on 6 January 1990 at the British Military Hospital in Hanover, Germany; his father was serving in the army. He had a steady career playing for Harlequins, Newcastle Falcons and many more while also winning caps for England Saxons.


7. David Sisi

The former England U20 and current Italy international was born in Rinteln, Germany in the British Military Hospital. The 27-year-old is of Italian descent and qualifies to play for Italy through his paternal grandparents and his father Carlo. His mother, Barbara, is English. However, he’d be able to play for Germany since he was born there.
