    Sonny Bill Williams is looking to entice Quade Cooper to play NRL



    SONNY Bill Williams is boldly trying to lure Wallabies playmaker Quade Cooper to the NRL next year.

    In a stunning development, Williams admits he is speaking to his close friend about switching codes and playing alongside him in 2013.

    Cooper, who this year agreed to remain at the Queensland Reds for a further three seasons, has not signed his binding top-up deal with the ARU and remains a free agent.

    Williams, who will return to the NRL next year after a stint in Japanese rugby, is stunned that Cooper's value to the Wallabies is under question and wants to form a league alliance between two of rugby's most recognised names.

    "If people are saying he is not wanted in rugby - first off, I think they are crazy and don't know what they're talking about - but if they think he is not good enough to be playing for Australia then I would love to lure him across to rugby league for a year," Williams said from Japan.

    "I will try. I would definitely love to play alongside him. I think he would be a success. I have spoken to him about it. He would be great to run off."

    While Williams has not confirmed which NRL club he will join, he has been heavily linked to the Roosters.

    Both Williams and Cooper are managed by Khoder Nasser and have wanted to play together for some time.

    Cooper, 24, will gather with Wallabies teammates today in Perth, where they will prepare for this Saturday's Test against South Africa.

    Only interest factor is that he's not signed his binding top-up deal with the ARU and remains a free agent.

    So if he hasn't signed with the ARU, did QRU break the rules by announcing the 3 year contract??

    I've heard a 'rumour' that a few of the Reds that re-signed haven't actually put pen to paper yet due to ARU and 3rd party haggles. I hear that Timmy Horan and Greg Martin have a lot to do with the 3rd party deals and a few are on shaky ground. Including Genia, Cooper, Tapuai.
    They can agree to terms with a franchise but can't sign a contract without getting ARU approval.
