Reds flyhalf and playmaker Quade Cooper has been cited for a dangerous tackle and will appear before a disciplinary hearing on Monday morning (SA time).

According to a SANZAR press release, Cooper stands accused of contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling when he tackled Waratahs player Berrick Barnes, making contact above the line of the shoulders of the opposing player.The incident was considered in the first instance by citing commissioner Nicholas Davidson, who felt it probably warranted a red card, hence the decision to convene a hearing.

The Judicial Officer for the Hearing will be Paul Tully and it will take place via video-conference at 6am South African time. With the Sharks due to face the Reds in a knock-out game this weekend, it goes without saying that even a one-match suspension would be quite well-received down in Durban.


  • I want Quade to be cleared so that BISMARCK CAN BREAK HIM!!!!!!!

  • - besides this is SANZAR and we know what will happen.
    SA teams need to start learning how to beat teams with ‘ Cooper-like’ players in anyway

  • @wpw (Comment 4) : I think the question you mean to ask is “how is that NOT funny”? :mrgreen:

    Quade Cooper is a serial criminal who deserves to meet swift justice at the hands of Bismarck “The Judge” du Plessis, Marcell “The Jury” Coetzee and Vic “The Executioner” Alberts. Case closed.
