Re: Rugby Union 2013 Thread

Apparently Robbie Deans is sabotaging Australian rugby because Quade Cooper isn't in the preliminary 30-man squad for the Lions tour:

Greg Martin said:
Robbie Deans wants to sabotage Australian rugby and could be a trojan horse put in to ruin the game there, says former Wallabies fullback Greg Martin..
The coach's decision to ignore the claims of controversial first-five Quade Cooper by leaving him out of the 30-man preliminary squad to prepare for the coming series with the British & Irish Lions has Martin seething.
Cooper is clearly offside with Deans after last year labelling the Wallabies environment "toxic", but Martin believes Cooper is the only No 10 capable of troubling the Lions and can't believe New Zealander Deans has left him out.

Bitch, please. If for example Dan Carter labelled the All Blacks environment under Steve Hanson 'toxic' I have no doubt he'd be out on his ass before he could say 'sorry'. I think James O'Connor would be a better fit at number 10 anyway, and he seems to be a team player unlike Quade 'Only out here for Number One' Cooper
