SYDNEY, Australia—Wallaby flyhalf Quade Cooper was fined $60,000 and given a
suspended three-match ban after being found guilty Wednesday by an Australian
Rugby Union disciplinary panel of bringing the game into disrepute. Terrell Suggs Camo Jersey . After a four-hour
hearing Wednesday, a three-man panel found the 24-year-old Cooper guilty of
making disparaging comments in September on social media and television which
heavily criticized the Wallabies and coach Robbie Deans, including claims of a
“toxic environment” which angered current and former players and coaching staff.
“It was a very fair hearing and I was very happy with the outcome,” said Cooper,
a talented playmaker who has 38 test caps since his international debut in 2008.
“Obviously, the sentence that has been handed to me, I have full respect for
that and I understand that I fell well below par in what it means to be a
Wallaby. For all the supporters that are out there, my apologies. “From now on,
Im just looking forward to the future—hopefully having a big year (in 2013),
with not only my state (Queensland) but the Wallabies. And Im very much looking
forward to overcoming my injury and getting back out on the field.” Cooper, who
has a history of discipline issues, is sitting out of Australias season-ending
tour to Europe due to a persistent right knee ailment. He spent seven months on
the sidelines following surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his
knee following last years World Cup, but reinjured it late in this seasons Rugby
Championship. Coopers current contract with the ARU expires on Dec. 31. “ARU
placed contract negotiations with Quade Cooper on hold until the tribunal
process had been finalized,” ARU deputy chief executive Matt Carroll said in a
statement Wednesday. “Given the tribunal has handed down its decision, this
matter as far as we are concerned has been finalized. ARU will now look at how
we address the contract situation involving Quade Cooper.” On Sept. 28, Cooper
said in a television interview that the national squads “toxic 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.
Cooper told “The Rugby Club” program that “other people feel the same but theres
going to be people that are happy with the environment and some that are not
happy … my comments were not designed to add more division to the team.” “My
hope and intent is that things are fixed from this point on and makes it a
better environment for people moving forward whether Im involved or not.” Cooper
has talked about the possibility of switching to rugby league to play with his
close friend and former All Blacks centre Sonny Bill Williams, a dual union and
league international. Bernard Pollard Womens Jersey . Last

him,” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. “In an emergency Im sure he could go

led the series 3-0 heading into Sundays game. Laird entered the night 0 for 3 in

if the Tigers won to extend the series. “That would be a concern, to be honest
with you,” he said. “Alex is very tough, without question, one of the toughest
Ive ever managed. If its hurting, its hurting. But I would have to talk to our
medical team about that.” ’ ’ ’
