Poaching leaving Ireland stumped

An England team ought to be English, not British. I don't want an England/Welsh or an England/Scottish rugby or soccer team. And I am sure that the vast majority of Scottish and Welsh supporters feel the same way. And for the same reasons I don't want an English/Welsh or an English/Scottish cricket team.

The Welsh have their own assembly and the Scots their own parliament. Let them get their own cricket teams if they want to be represented at cricket on the international stage.

So may I ask England to stop poaching our best Irish players (Ed Joyce, Eoin Morgan, and Boyd Rankin).
