    Personally id take him, and at a reduced rate which he is willing to accept,i would take him on, i dont even think it would be a gamble, we have been screaming for another attacking half, do it deano even it was for only 4 or so months.
    Pretty talented and fit lad.

    How old's he now? IDK to be honest. Of course he has 'talent' but I really don't think signing such players is the way forward for this club. We've still got Foran at the club and if he remains fit we may as well keep him. If we let go of Foran then I'd really hope for a younger and better player than Quade.

    Could be worse though I guess? Would want top dollar

    He looks super-fit and obviously has talent, bit late to maybe throw him into NRL but who’s knows, those crazy trick passes he’s been doing at Broncos training are next-level...

    Fox sports reported that broncos can’t get him since they’ve filled their 30 man roster but dogs and titans are enquiring about him and he’s stated he’s willing to play anywhere not just qld. Could be a good pick up

    He can't tackle in union I'd hate to see how he would tackle in league.

    Changing codes when you're 32 is going to end badly the vast majority of the time.

    We need big names to attract other big names.

    So yes. Use CHNs money on him for a year or two

    Agree that big names attract big names but I don't think Cooper will attract anyone else.

    He's a 32 year washed up rugby player who last played in Japan. It's more of a gamble then some massive name coming to the club.

    What happened to the no dickhead policy? Hasn't Cooper been in trouble off the field his whole career?

    It's hardly the right time to be changing codes without a full preseason, especially at his age. Let someone else take the gamble. We need to be signing players with a bright future, not 32 year old hasbeen Rugby players.

    We're already 0-2 and it will be a reduced season. We're not making the finals so they should focus on developing youngsters instead of desperation moves like this.

    Could get our club in the news on Japan since he's been playing there.
    They have a thing for school girls in Japan too.

    Worth a shot I reckon. Remainder of year with one in our option. We have a few spots to fill for 2020, wouldn’t command too much for part year. We’d have near on a mil - 1.2

    ROFL... No.

    32 years of age, 0 NRL experience.

    We finally start getting back some spending money and you wanna waste it on this shit?

    Yeah I agree.

    Whats the upside in signing him? He won't pass on much if anything to the younger players because he's learning the game himself and then even if he fires which is unlikely he's got a very limited time left his career.

    No if we were to sign anyone from union it would have to be Jordan Petaia.
