Former England fly-half Toby Flood is considering switching allegiance to play for Germany.
The 32-year-old won the last of his 60 caps in 2013 and effectively made himself unavailable for international selection when he joined French outfit Toulouse in 2014.
A return to Newcastle for the upcoming Aviva Premiership season could see Flood return to the England fray, but with George Ford and Owen Farrell key components of Eddie Jones' side, he is prepared to switch to minnows Germany should a recall not be forthcoming.
"If there was any way of trying to help a fledgling rugby country, it would interest me," Flood told the Times.
Flood's grandfather Albert Lieven left Berlin under duress in 1936, and the Falcons fly-half applied for a German passport in the wake of the Brexit vote.
"I have always been proud of being German," he added. "It would be nice to go back and connect it all together.
"My mum is the last remaining true Lieven and she went back to Germany about 10 years ago to put together the family tree, so if there was a chance to connect into that it would be great."

Arsene Wenger wants to slim down his Arsenal squad before making any further additions.
Some of the north London club's shortcomings, particularly defensively, were exposed as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday.
Gunners manager Wenger has not ruled out more signings before the transfer window closes at the end of the month, but his immediate priority is to move out unwanted players.
"I expect to sell players first," the Frenchman said. "We have too many players. It is not manageable. Many clubs are in this situation - that is why the transfer market is quiet.
"We have 33 players at the moment. We have too many players."
