Jackson Hastings is eligible to represent Great Britain
Salford’s Australia-born half-back Jackson Hastings qualifies to play for Great
Britain, the Rugby Football League has confirmed.
The 23-year-old was born in Wollongong but qualifies for England through his Plymouth-born grandmother and is keen to pull on a Lions on the end-of-season tour to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
Hastings was not included in coach Wayne Bennett’s initial squad because he had not proved his eligibility, but an RFL spokesman says the paperwork was submitted by Salford Red Devils on his behalf on Monday morning.
