Bad boys of rugby

Aap
Thursday, March 27, 2014

BRISBANE - They may be the most penalised team in the competition but the Queensland Reds don't believe they are the "bad boys" of Super Rugby.

Reds playmaker Quade Cooper admits he has been bewildered by some referees' calls but says the 2011 champions are maintaining a positive approach as they look to turn their season around against the Stormers at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

Queensland are still privately fuming over South African referee Stuart Berry's influence in their 23-20 loss to the Lions in Johannesburg on Sunday morning (AEDT) when the Reds' 20-3 lead evaporated under a 17-4 penalty count.

Asked if he felt the Reds were the Super Rugby "bad boys", Cooper said: "It looks that way at the moment."
