We read this morning that one of Australia's highest-paid rugby players, Lote Tuqiri has had his contract terminated rather suddenly. The ARU is saying little, only that it is "an employment matter", whilst Tuqiri is calling in the lawyers.
Clearly, something has happened behind the scenes to precipitate the ARU's action. And doubtless, in the fullness of time, the details will be revealed. In the meantime, perhaps we can speculate! We understand that Tuqiri is no friend of Aussie Bob Deans; we wonder if there have been too many sheep jokes in the Ocker dressing room. Or if you know the truth, or even think that you do, feel free to share it!
