There are some rugby players who say one selfie is too many but not Quade Cooper. The hotstepper's Twitter feed is littered with them. Eventually Cooper did take one selfie too many and broke his collarbone taking a selfie with a giant schoolgirl (pictured left, source:twitter).
Cooper said, "I'm gutted to be missing the start of the season, but have been cheered up looking at pictures of people's dogs". The Red's flyhalf was referring to the bizarre phenomenon of Twits naming their dogs after him (to the left, to the left, all the dogs in a box to the left).
The fractured collarbone is expected to take three months to heal. It's a severe blow to the Reds Super Rugby campaign before the Super Rugby season has even started.
The 2011 Champions have fallen from grace in recent years, finishing last season down in 13th place. Fantasy rugby managers should be advised to steer clear of anything Red this season.
Fortunately the Queensland franchise have acquired the services of James "Mister Meaner" O'Connor. The Wallaby utility back is a probable candidate to start at flyhalf providing he can get through the airport without downing a bottle of Bundy.
Responding to how he would spend his recovery, Cooper told press, "On the upside I can spend more time on Twitter." Quade Cooper spend more time on Twitter? Is that possible?
Obey my dog!
