Former Wallabies fly-half Quade Cooper has been denied Australian citizenship despite playing for the country in 70 Tests.
Born in New Zealand, the 33-year-old moved to Brisbane in 2001 at the age of 13 and featured for rugby union side of Anglican Church Grammar School in 2005 and 2006.
Having played for Queensland Reds between 2006 and 2018, Cooper switched to Rebels in the 2019 season following which he headed to Japan signing a deal with Kintetsu Liners.
The 33-year-old made his international debut for Australia in 2008 and went on to play 70 Tests for them including appearances in the 2011 and 2015 World Cups but was denied to represent Australia 7s side in the Rio Olympics in 2016 because he did not have Australian citizenship.
He also had represented Australia Schoolboys, Australia Sevens and Australia Under 20 teams in the past.
Cooper expressed his disappointment on his social media account Twitter with his post reading "wearing the green and gold 70 times apparently is not enough these days..."
