70-cap Wallaby Quade Cooper denied Australian citizenship

Former Wallaby Quade Cooper played 70 Tests for Australia, including appearances at two World Cups, but he still can't officially call himself an Aussie.

Cooper, who was born in New Zealand but moved to Australia when he was 13 years old, has never represented his nation of birth in rugby.

This is very interesting for Cotton.

He has criminal history I believe.

Doesn't mention that in the grounds for refusal.

No criminal history, it was all sorted out in mediation. Who knows why, maybe he needed the afl boss to make a call to potato head to get exempt, that seems to work. ::)))

Is this the direction FIBA are going? Allowing people who can't even get citizenship to present a country?

Just another example of why people should start the process when they're young, and still living in Australia.

Not sure that he, out of the hundreds of thousands of applicants, has anything in common with Cotton?
