As an Australian I find this offensive. This is a wonderful country whose diversity and embracing of other cultures makes us unique in the world. We are a nation founded and built upon immigration. Even today almost 30% of our population are people born overseas. Anyone who has the privilege to become a citizen of this country deserves the recognition, respect and dignity offered to every Australian. Being Australian is about embracing a set of values that transcend geography. These players are as 'actually Australian' as any other citizen of this country.
