Reagan Campbell-Gillard admits he feels bad for knocking back Fiji for the Rugby League World Cup and then accepting an offer to represent the Kangaroos.
But he is adamant it wasn’t about the money.
Campbell-Gillard, who played one Test for the Bati in 2014, initially opted to turn his back on Fiji in favor of a rest before the Kangaroos came calling following Andrew Fifita’s withdrawal.
Regans says it was basically that he didn’t want to play and he thought he would give the opportunity to someone else that will respect the Bati jersey.
The Penrith prop will be on the Kangaroos’ bench when they face Fiji at 10pm on Friday in Brisbane.
