Description:
Quota players is a term in sport referring to the limit of foreign players on a domestic team.

Rugby League

Each English Super League team is allowed to have three foreign players. Harlequins Rugby League are permitted four quota players as they are considered to be a non-heartland team. The Welsh team Crusaders is allowed 14 overseas players and French side Catalans Dragons are allowed eight non-French players.

Championship teams are only allowed one quota player, aside from Toulouse who have five foreign players.

Exceptions

There are three exceptions for a player to avoid quota player status. Those are listed below:

1. When a player has played for a rugby team for six years, he is eligible to gain British citizenship and does not count under the quota.

2. If the player has a passport for any EU nation or a Kolpak nation.

3. If the player is from a Kolpak nation such as Samoa or Tonga.
