Singapore – Controversial Wallaby flyhalf Quade Cooper has rejected a contract offer by the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) and may now pursue a career overseas or switch to Rugby League, local media reported on Monday.

Cooper has not played for Australia since describing the team environment as 'toxic' - a comment which led the ARU to fine him $40,000 last month.

Channel Nine news said on Monday the New Zealand-born flyhalf had rejected a low incentive based contract, and could now switch to the lucrative French Top 14 competition or to Rugby League. – Reuters
