Sam Cane is the latest to suggest opening up the All Blacks’ eligibility to New Zealanders playing for overseas clubs.

The current All Blacks captain has asked NZ Rugby to consider allowing players overseas to be eligible for national selection.

Former Springbok and rugby commentator Kevin Putt approves of this idea, claiming it's been successful for South Africa.

"What we've got to look at is- why are we 7th in the world in the under-20s? We've got France and Ireland one and two, we've got years of pain ahead of us at the moment."
