Nathan Hughes insists sacrificing a World Cup and building a new life halfway across the globe proves his commitment to Englands cause after qualifying on residency.Hughes has revealed he suffered some criticism after opting to represent England, rejecting the opportunity to go to World Cup 2015 with Fiji.Wasps Fiji-born number eight is in line for his Test debut during Englands autumn internationals, with the 25-year-old bursting with pride to have made coach Eddie Jones Elite Player Squad.World Rugby could extend the three-year residency qualification period for a nation to select a player born abroad by two years - but Hughes has outlined the challenges of the current system.It wasnt easy. People said youre not from here, why do you want to play for England, you should be playing for your own country, Hughes told Press Association Sport.But at the end of the day its my decision and its my choice, who I want to play for. I count this as home now. England is where Ive played for more than three years and Im comfortable in saying this is home.No disrespect, Fiji is always in my heart and my family will always be there. But this is where I play my rugby, this is my bread and butter, over here.Hughes left Auckland for Wasps in 2013 and has detailed how seeking a fresh start in a new country on the other side of the world was not always plain-sailing.At the end of the day, its my decision, said Hughes. I had chats with family and friends, talking options and things, and theyve backed me with my decision and Im happy to make that decision, to play for England.It was a long three years. To be fair when I first came to Wasps that wasnt in my mind to play for England.But as the year went along and I got games under my belt, I felt good, then the second year I got going again, and I came into form. And then it came into my mind that England could potentially be one of my goals.My family and everyones delighted, stoked and chuffed for the decision Ive made as well.It is very exciting to have made the England squad, but the easy bits done now. Ill have to battle really hard to keep making the cuts moving forward.If I can keep playing well and improving week on week then hopefully the rugby will do the talking.Hughes has first-hand experience of Wasps transformation from cash-strapped strugglers to Aviva Premiership power, and credits much of that progress to rugby director Dai Young.Young stuck with Wasps through several lean years searching for a new home, and is now reaping the rewards with his side flourishing on and off the field at their Ricoh Arena base in Coventry.Wasps currently sit second in the Premiership after making the play-offs last term and reaching the Champions Cup semi-finals.Youngs side make the trip to Toulouse on Sunday in a bid to stamp an early claim for top spot in Pool Two.Im massively grateful to Dai for both the opportunity to play here and the way in which hes backed me and helped me improve, said Hughes.Ive got to grab it with both hands and be grateful for the chance, because I know just how much people would want to be in my spot.My games come on hugely in the time Ive been here.This is my fourth season now with Wasps. Weve moved on a lot in that time, its a big change.Im happy the clubs moving in the right direction and I want to be a part of it.Dais been telling us its all up to us if we want to win silverware and I think the players hes brought in and signed are here to do the job and I want to be a part of that as well.

Amid a back-and-forth between Riot Games co-founder and League of Legends co-creator Marc Tryndamere Merrill and Team SoloMid owner Andy Reginald Dinh, Merrill has issued a new response to the situation, saying that his initial response on Reddit two days ago was ill-warranted and failed to acknowledge many of the issues discussed by Dinh in a recent interview with theScore.Merrill recognizes that his initial response, which has received criticism from other team owners, industry leaders, journalists and the League of Legends community, read as a passive-aggressive response to Dinhs concerns. Merrill says he agrees with many of Dinhs recent criticisms, both in the interview with theScore and a follow up response by Dinh on Twitlonger.League esports (in its current form) doesnt provide the long-term security and sustainability that we ultimately aspire to for teams and pros, Merrill said in his response. Team costs are rising faster (and in some cases are higher) than team revenues, and while this may be the short-term reality of growing a young sport (particularly as thhe value of teams grow), its not what we believe the long-term state of League esports will be.ddddddddddddThis response backtracks from his original statement, in which he criticized Dinh for spending money on other esports outside League of Legends. In his first response, Merrill said, Maybe [Dinh] should spend some of the millions he has made / makes from League of Legends on paying them instead of investing in other esports where he is losing money.In his new response, Merrill reveals some new information about Riot Games business plans, including team-specific items such as revenue sharing for the teams and their professional players. This is a model that Dinh said works well in first-person shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, where teams logos and players signatures are sold as stickers to place on guns. That revenue is divided between Counter-Strikes developer, Valve, and the teams, which ultimately trickles down to the players.
