Cool it, Cooper

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

MICHAEL Cheika says Quade Cooper must learn not to re­act to the tor­rent of vi­cious abuse he re­ceives on so­cial media and in the press fol­low­ing his Twit­ter blow- up in Ar­gentina.

Cooper pub­licly apol­o­gised on Sun­day fol­low­ing his 4.49am out­burst, which came af­ter he read a scathing news col­umn and a raft of un­kind taunts af­ter Aus­tralia de­feated the Pu­mas in Men­doza.

Wal­la­bies coach Cheika ver­bally rep­ri­manded Cooper for his use of foul lan­guage on Twit­ter but will not take fur­ther ac­tion, in­stead sup­port­ing the player who at­tracts more neg­a­tiv­ity than any other in rugby.
