Players from 'Tier 2' nations playing in Europe (2018/2019)

This year we have added a bit more detail to our annual list of all the players from outside Tier 1 nations playing professionally in Western Europe (in the Top 14 or Pro D2 in France, Premiership or Championship in England, or Pro14 in the Celtic nations and Italy).

The main list of compiled based on players who have made their professional first team domestic debut and either a) raised and gone through most of their development outside a Tier 1 nation or b) been called up to a national squad outside a Tier 1 nation at some level whether it be age grade, a selection team, or the senior team either at 15 or 7s.


However this season we have also additionally listed players in Espoirs or Academy squads who have not yet made their full first team professional debut (such players are shaded in green). Plus also players who were predominantly raised in a Tier 2 nation (like Tim Visser or Samu Ezeala) but have since gone on to be part of a squad of another nation (they are shaded in red). There are also a couple of players who have yet to make their first team debut, were raised mostly outside a Tier 1 nation, but who have represented different nations at youth level (they are shaded green but with red text).


We have attempted to represent which country each player mostly grew up and were raised in. Whilst for the majority of players this is obvious (Aj MacGinty grew up in Ireland for example), in others there could either be a mixture of countries, or in a few cases could be simply hard to find out exactly, so there is the possibility of error. In cases of scholarship players who can move as young as 15 or 16, we are listing them as with their initial country that raised them to that point even though they may have spent as much time training in their adopted country by the time they are 22 or 23.


Finally also added which players are officially cap tied through 15s, 7s, or a designated second team.


If there is an error or player missing simply leave a comment and it will be corrected.
