Cooper’s Kiwi admirer

Cooper’s Kiwi admirer

IT APPEARS Wallabies first five Quade Cooper does indeed have at least one Kiwi fan.

Michelle Taylor, a New Zealander living in Australia who follows Cooper on Twitter, tweeted last week that her mother in New Zealand had been rushed to hospital.

“A short time afterwards I received a message from Quade asking how she was doing. It was a wonderful gesture from him and he didn't have to do it. Go Wallabies (and Robbie [Deans]),” she wrote.

Cooper has incurred the wrath of All Blacks fans following a series of cheap-shots on Richie McCaw and seems to love the fact that he is ‘Public Enemy No 1’ in New Zealand at the moment.
