Cooper in hot water

Quade Cooper will appear in court after being charged with burglary in Queensland on Sunday.

Rugbyheaven.com.au reported that a Gold Coast resident found his property damaged by forced entry and allegedly saw Cooper going through his house. It is alleged that Cooper left with personal property.

The victim then called the Queensland police, who took Cooper into custody after finding the Wallabies player in the vicinity.

The 21-year-old has since been released on bail, but will will appear in court on Friday.

If found guilty, Cooper could face further action by the ARU and QRU considering the strict ruling against axed wing Lote Tuqiri for breaking protocol earlier this year.

‘We’ve got to establish the full facts of the matter before we can decide what action, if any, will be taken,’ said a QRU spokesperson.
