Does anybody really know what Quade Cooper is doing? I believe he is leaving Australian rugby and will let everybody know on Monday. And if all the stories are right, who cut his salary and what did they expect Cooper to do?
We talk about it week-in, week-out, but it’s the same old problems for the Wallabies. There was no enthusiasm against the French, no skill, and no attack.
A lot of Roarers make the point about how much bigger, faster, and stronger the players of today are. And I agree with them. But my concerns lie more around how the basic skills have been neglected in the process.
I played international rugby against Robbie Deans. He was a good, steady player who liked to kick goals. There was nothing flash about him. And judging by his recent comments about the Wallabies scoring tries, nothing much has changed.
Some of you might find it ironic, but I actually tipped the Wallabies to beat the All Blacks in Brisbane last weekend.
So John O’Neill has finally stepped aside. I’m wondering why he didn’t he take the underperforming Robbie Deans with him.
