AUSTRALIA’S Quade Cooper has been charged with burglary after allegedly robbing a house on the Gold Coast.
Cooper, who played in the Wallabies’ recent tour of Britain and Ireland, was released from a police station in the Australian town of Southport yesterday.
He is due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on December 11.
Cooper plays for Queensland Reds in the Super 14, and a spokesman declined to comment but said they would “establish the full facts of the matter” before deciding whether any action would be taken.
The centre made his international debut in November 2008, coming off the bench against Italy and scoring in a 30-20 Wallabies victory. He has played nine Tests for Australia, including all four of their Grand Slam tour last month.
