Abstract

The purpose of this case study is to enable readers to revisit, perhaps re-ignite, the debates that divided members of the global rugby league community and overshadowed at least two international test matches. The study presents some of the conclusions drawn by a number of stakeholders, including players and coaches (past and present), agents and administrators, family and, most importantly, the two migrants themselves. It highlights a multitude of potential motivations simultaneously pushing and pulling professional athletes in multiple directions, but also dem- onstrates the varying degrees of empathy and apathy found within the public communities affected by these personal cases of elite athlete mobility

Teaching and learning

This item is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Geographical setting
