Whereas former New Zealand league international Hape qualifies under residency for England, there is no chance of Chris Latham ever pulling on the red rose.
The 6ft 4in ex-Queensland Reds full-back won 78 caps for Australia and is the Wallabies' second-highest all-time try scorer, behind David Campese, with 40.
Despite a slightly shuffling running style Latham is a superb counter attacker and has a prodigious and accurate boot.
He recovered from a serious ACL injury in 2007 to make his third World Cup and although now 32, looks set to make a big impression for Worcester.
