New Cooper jibes confuse ARU
Fri, 28 Sep 2012 4:29p.m.
Injured Australia first-five Quade Cooper has added to his "toxic environment" claims about the Wallabies, criticising the team's training facilities and questioning whether he'll ever play for the team again.
Cooper said in a television interview that the team's "environment is sort of destroying me as a person and as a player."
He added that there were "a number of things" that need to be addressed with the team, starting with the facilities available to the Wallabies to prepare for international matches.
On Friday, Australian Rugby Union chief executive John O'Neill said in a statement he was "utterly confused" by Cooper's new comments, adding: "most disturbingly, he was firm about not playing for the Wallabies unless things change. If that is how he feels, then that is his choice."
