Reds talk about French flavour

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

FRANCE star Fred­eric Micha­lak ( right) is a po­ten­tial tar­get for the Queens­land Reds as they search the world for an ex­pe­ri­enced fly­half to re­place Quade Cooper next year. Yesterday’s an­nounce­ment that for­mer All Blacks back­rower Adam Thom­son, 33, is leav­ing the Reds to take up a one- year deal with the Mel­bourne Rebels is the cer­tain sign the Su­per Rugby club is hunt­ing for an im­port to play No. 10. With Wal­laby Cooper seem­ingly set on a con­tract course to pur­sue rugby sev­ens and a shot at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics next year, the Reds are des­per­ate to find an ex­pe­ri­enced play­maker to fill the void.
