Had to post this

Australian Rugby Union has terminated the contract of Lote Tuqiri, effective immediately.
Click here to find out more!

The ARU has yet to make a comment on why Tuqiri has lost his Wallabies contract, as 'it may be the subject of legal proceedings'.

Recently, Wallaby coach Robbie Deans has repeatedly chosen against including the ex-Rugby League star in his squads for Test matches against Italy and France, despite making it clear he hopes of improve the depth of his squad.

Suppose I could but thought people would have figured that one out. Maybe the BRoncos if not then he will head overseas for rugby

I have heard that the Titans have told him that their door is open for him. If not it would be overseas.

Interesting decision, I wonder if it has anything to do with a possible return to the NRL for Lote...

Lote Tuqiri to the Titans?

THe biggest question to come out of this is.... What took them so long?

He was at his absolute peak when he switched. Arguably the best winger in the code at the time. Yet he never reached the same heights as a union player.

So was he overrated as a league player to begin with? or, despite the protestations of the leaguie crowd, is union simply a harder game to grasp?

He was never as good as many people thought he was. Was just at the end of a very strong (understatement) Wallaby backline - a drunk monkey would've looked good at the end of a Gregan/Larkham/Gitaeu/Mortlock line...

I was watching the Footy Show yesterday and they were talking about the choices and possibilites for him:

- Move to French rugby
- Move to the ESL
- Move to Broncos, Titans, Roosters

I reckon he'll go to French rugby, if not he'll come back to League with either Broncs or Titans.

I reckon he should too, but cant see him going there because no NRL club will offer him anywhere near the amount of coin the ARU was paying him.

Just like add my opinion on Lote i thought he was our best player and i don't think he's replaceable am a fan of sterling mortlock also Lote best Sterling 2nd best. His so called poor behaviour at times should be overlooked if we are serious about winning i think we can still win only because the All Blacks don't seem to be playing that well at the moment but thats why (we can win) not cause we are any good.
