I can see this being harder on Reda than the team. He'll lose his place against Chezzies and probably have to start PigFest from the bench.

Was hoping to see Palmer and Reda start Saturday but obviously chuffed for them both to be representing their countries.

I agree and playing for your country is the pinnacle of anybody's career (or should be) regardless of where that nation is!
