'Aussie John' Bateman has a nice ring to it

John Bateman is loving Australia so much he's thinking of becoming a citizen. "A few people have asked me about that. It's one of those things I'd definitely be interested in looking into," he said.

Bateman is loving the Canberra Raiders so much his manager is arriving from England at the end of the season to start extension talks. The 25-year-old isn't off contract until 2021 but he's already planning to extend that.

Apparently he can be eligible for Aus if he’s a citizen for 3 years. Found some articles around Radradra being eligible for Aus, despite being Fijian

Hodgson is a permanent resident, he has a couple more years before he can become a citizen

Yes this is correct.

Many people remain permanent residents without ever becoming citizens.
