“Following the news reported by the newspaper ‘El Mundo’ this Tuesday about possible doubts or irregularities in the qualification of New Zealander Jason Tomen by Romania, the Spanish Rugby Federation (FER) announced that it has accepted this information as its legal The Spanish Federation said in its statement that they are the ones who continue the process against the Romanian Federation and World Rugby.

The Federation understands that there are parallels between the case published by this medium and the situation in the previous April Gavin Van Den Burgo, Spain’s team has been denied participation in the World Cup due to a discrepancy in the passport of a player of South African origin. In particular, they were pictures of a wedding who revealed that the player had spent more than 60 days outside Spanish borders in the years prior to making his debut with the national team.

Similar is the case of Jason Toman. The player must live outside Romanian territory, especially in HungaraAbout three months during the summer of 2019.

“exceptional circumstances”

Romanian argue that the situation tomane It is legal because World Rugby knows about it. “According to Romanian law, in order to obtain a valid residence visa for our country, the applicant must apply from outside the country.
