Austin’s Chalkboard: Quade Cooper in Defence

Austin’s Chalkboard: Quade Cooper in Defence

Quade Cooper’s stats in defence against Italy were much better than they’ve been recently — 100 per cent of tackles made and even a dominant tackle.

While the result was better, what changed? Was it the influence of Phil Blake? Did Quade just have a better approach to his defence? Or wasn’t he required to defend as much this week?

Watch the video for my take on what was happening.
