Things to keep in mind:
- Some of the players listed were either born or raised elsewhere, but who opted to play for another nation they were eligible for (particularly with French players in the Iberian teams and New Zealanders in the Samoan and Tongan teams). There may be more players who are eligible for another nations, but they are not listed unless they have shown a desire to play for them.
- There are players from outside the Tier 1 nations who are not listed as their eligibility is locked to Tier 1 nations or have stated they have no desire to play for them.
- Neither Algeria or Cyprus are yet full IRB members, so players who have played international rugby for them still be eligible for other countries.
- Uncapped players at Irish provinces will almost certainly have remaining Irish qualified as a condition of their contract and won't play for any other nation as long as they're there. Probably the same applies for an uncapped player in Scotland as well.

    I think you can add Serge Sergueev on the russian list. Born 26.12.1987 he plays for Montauban in ProD2. He played the Churchill Cup for Russia in 2010.

    As I see, you added some young players from academy teams. In this case there are some georgians :
    Zaur Kharebava (lh, 17.3.1995, La Rochelle)
    Toko Tedoradze (lh, 1996, Leeds Carnegie)
    Giorgi Neparidze (hk, 23.3.1996, Bordeaux-Bègles)
    Roland Kvachadze (lk, 5.5.1995, Clermont)
    Tornike Zoidze (fl, 1996, Clermont)

    Also, Abdaladze from Leinster and Meunargia from Connacht but they played for Ireland U19...
