Why Quade Cooper Will Switch To Sydney Roosters
Matty Johns says Quade Cooper would be an "outstanding rugby league player" as rumours circulate about Cooper's whereabouts for 2013.
"The reason I say that is he and his manager Khoder Nasser met with Eddie Jones the other day," Matty Jones said on Triple M.
As a former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones, Cooper and Nasser went for a "bit of guidance" said Matty.
Jones is reported to have told Quade to move to rugby league as "that's your game" according to Johns.
"He actually said to him 'I would call Nick Politis straight away, I would go to the Roosters and I would team up with Sonny Bill Williams'," Matty said of Eddie's advice to Quade Cooper. "Now that would be some star power."
Matty said if he was head of the ARLC and he heard this he'd "get straight on the phone to Khoder Nasser...and make this happen."
"For Quade Cooper and Sonny Bill Williams to cross from rugby union over to rugby league, boy-o-boy, what a kick in the guts for the 15-a-side game," Matty stated.
