What They Should Do… is be more like Ellyse Perry

WTSD… is be more like Ellyse Perry. Ellyse Perry represents Australia in soccer and cricket, and if she had time she could probably do netball and molecular biology. Israel Folau and Quade Cooper can’t even manage one sport. What’s stopping them from being like one of Australia’s finest athletes and doubling-up codes? Union and league aren’t that different. Just play both. Sort it out fellas. Imagine the appearance fee they’d get for two sports. If a twenty-two year old woman can play contrasting sports at an international level why can’t these guys? Sure Quade Cooper is bringing his boxercise experience into the squared circle for a fight – for want of a better word – but that’s a once off. Personally I think it would be good if he spent his whole time getting hit in the head really hard. But that’s off topic.
