Allowing Wellington to sign Socceroo Jade North as a regular 'local' player when Australian based teams are struggling to get their squads to 20 is wrong. North Queensland still only has 19 players.
If New Zealand players are the same as Australian players for Wellington, it should be the same for every A-League club.
For Brisbane, this would mean another foreign spot is opened as Kosta would be re-classified from foreign to local.
But seriously how many young New Zealanders are missing out for more experienced Australians? Didn't some of the World Cup squad include New Zealand local leaguers?
