The Rugby World Cup is less than three months away and fans are starting to get excited. Rugby league fans that is.
Quade Cooper, Sonny Bill Williams and James O’Connor are just a few of the names that league fans will be watching with interest. All have been targeted by various NRL clubs as potential new signings when their union contracts end.
Cooper was chased hard by the Parramatta Eels in 2010 before deciding to re-sign with the ARU to play in the 2011 World Cup.
The new Brisbane expansion consortium have also made it no secret of their desire to lure Wallabies five-eighth Cooper and All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams as marquee signings should they be successful in gaining entry into the NRL in 2013.
League to union converts such as Lote Tuqiri, Timana Tahu, Mat Rogers and Sonny Bill Williams have all had huge success switching codes and it makes sense that the reverse could also be true.
