With a controversial new agent in his corner, he insists that his client Quade Cooper would be silly to refute the possibility of a surprise defection to the NRL, if the opportunity arose.

The man who manages Anthony Mundine and Sonny Bill Williams – Khoder Nasser, already has a close eye on Cooper’s possible deal with the Broncos after the Rugby World Cup.

It was the Eels, who have a fair chunk of money to spend, that first showed an interest in the Union star – and now the Broncos are considering the possibility, as they look towards life after Darren Lockyer, who has announced that season 2011 will be his last.

“As a manager involved with a professional athlete like Quade, I think it is important he have as many options on the table as possible,” Nasser said.

“He would be foolish to rule anything like that [the Broncos] out. Top-level sportspeople only get to dance on the field for a certain amount of time and they have to make the most of it.

“Quade is a great athlete who would be a success in whatever he tried.

“His level of performance certainly creates a lot of options for him.”
