Quade Cooper was far from spicy to the previous match between Australia and New Zealand Sunday in Perth. The 10th of Wallabies was dispatched with praise for his rival, Beauden Barrett.
It is speculated that Saturday could be the great showdown of number 10 between the return of Quade Cooper and the start of Beauden Barrett in the absence of Richie Mo’unga.
Cooper referred to the presence of “Beaudy” in the New Zealand team: “That’s what happens with the All Blacks. You have Richie Mo’unga absent due to the birth of one of his children, and you have Beauden, two of the best players in the world “.
He also added: How do you defend that? You have to put too much emphasis on one person to try to stop them. It’s more about slowing them down and the All Blacks as a whole. “
Finally, he finished with more compliments towards the opening of the men in black: “To answer your question, he [Barrett] He’s a tough guy to contain, and we’ll try to stop him as best we can. “
