Not one to pull
coaching boss Richard
Graham says he has
no problem with
stepping into the
ring again despite the
injury risk it poses to
his stellar rugby career.
A frank Graham
agrees Cooper s
tour should have
him mentioned as a
future Reds captain ---
however, he confirmed
James Hor will will be
skipper in 2014.
Cooper has made it
clear since inspiring
the Wallabies tour-
ending 30-26 win over
Wales that he will not
follow in the footsteps
of good mate Sonny
Bill Williams, who has
said he does not plan to continue
a budding boxing career for at
least three years.
Due to the hectic year-round
rugby schedule, Cooper may
be forced to cram his second
professional bout in between Reds
pre-season trials similar to what
he successfully pulled off earlier
Cooper made a stunning
professional debut with a first-
round stoppage of insurance
salesman Barry Dunnett on
the undercard of Williams
heavyweight win over former
champion Francois Botha in
Brisbane in February.
Graham would be forgiven for
not wanting to see his star charge
back in the ring as he prepares to
officially take over the Reds reins
from Ewen McKenzie.
But Graham said boxing
training only seemed to benefit
Cooper s rugby game.
"Quade handled the situation
last year. I have no issues (with
him continuing boxing)," he said.
"I think physically it keeps him
in really good condition. Over the
years he has learned a lot of self
discipline. I think he has really
matured and that has reflected
in his performances the last few
Cooper has risen under
McKenzie to become Australia s
vice-captain while Horwill has
bounced back with outstanding
form since being surprisingly
stripped of the national captaincy.
Graham admitted a reformed
Cooper had ensured he had
no shortage of Reds captaincy
candidates but would stick with
incumbent Horwill in 2014.
"Quade has been outstanding on
this tour," he said.
"He is confident and when he is
you see the full array of skills that
he has got --- I think that makes
us a better team. Quade has been
a leader here for the last three
or four years by the nature of his
"Horwill has captained the team
very well. ere is no reason in my
mind to change the captaincy."
Graham balked when it was
suggested Horwill had relished
being without the captaincy
"I don t think necessarily taking
the captaincy off him was the
catalyst (to tour form)," he said.
Graham said winger Rod
Davies (knee) was their only
injury concern ahead of a busy
pre-season which will include
a February 14 clash with
Melbourne Rebels at "spiritual
Fifa will go ahead with its controversial
decision to stage World Cup matches at
midday in tropical venues, president Sepp
Blatter said today as soccer s governing body
announced a bafflingly complex procedure
for Friday s draw.
General secretary Jerome Valcke caused
general bewilderment as he tried to explain
the workings of the draw which will decide
which teams comprise the eight first-round
groups at next year s tournament.
"It s not easy to understand it the first time,
I agree with you" he said. "It took me some
time to be sure I had the right explanation."
Each group will consist of one team from
each of four pots with pot 1 featuring the
top seeds: Brazil, the host nation, alongside
Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay, Germany,
Spain, Belgium and Switzerland.
e other pots will be based on
geographical criteria so that countries from
the same confederations are kept apart.
Pot 2 will contain the five African teams,
Ivory Coast, Ghana, Algeria, Nigeria and
Cameroon, plus the non-seeded South
American teams Chile and Ecuador and a
European team to be moved out of Pot 4 in
Pot 3 will feature Japan, Iran, South Korea,
Australia, United States, Mexico, Costa Rica
and Honduras while nine European sides,
Bosnia, Croatia, England, Greece, Italy,
Netherlands, Portugal, Russia and France,
will comprise pot 4.
Valcke revealed that a pre-draw will be
held to move one of the nine European
teams into pot 2 where they would then
be drawn against one of the four seeded
South American teams to preserve the
geographical balance of the draw.
To complicate matters further, the four
South American seeds would form a
temporary pot X and the three not drawn
against the European team in pot 2 will
return to the main draw.
A seeded team s place in the draw will
determine how much travelling around the
vast hinterland of Brazil, the world s fifth
largest country by area, will be involved and
may therefore not be so beneficial as in the
e seeded team in group H will have a
relatively easy first round schedule with
matches in the milder conditions of Belo
Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
But the seeds in group G will play in
the intense heat of north-eastern cities
Fortaleza, Natal, Salvador or Recife.
e team that meet Brazil in the opening
game --- position A2 in the draw --- will face
a 3880km flight to Manaus in the Amazon
for their next match before a 4508km flight
to Recife for their third game.
Any team surviving that probably deser ves
a place in the last 16 for stoicism alone.
Kick-off times could also pose a threat to
a team s chances depending on whether they
play in the humid north or the chilly south.
From June 12 until June 22 when there
are three matches a day --- the programme
switches to four a day from June 23 to
June 26 for the last round of group games
--- matches are due to start at 1pm, 4pm
and 7pm local time to maximise European
However, the early kick-off time has
sparked some unease as it will be very hot in
the north-east at that time of day.
Blatter said last month that FIFA could
reconsider but changed his mind today.
"We are sticking with the kick-off times,
they have been decided. ere is no change,"
he told reporters.
From June 23 until June 26 a pair of games
will kick off at 1pm and the other pair at the
same time later in the afternoon, although
the clock will show 4pm in one stadium
and 5pm at the other because they are in
different time zones.
Brazil, already allocated position A1 in the
draw, will kick off the World Cup on June
12 in Sao Paulo, where two construction
workers were killed last week when a crane
collapsed on to the stadium staging the
e host team then play in Fortaleza
before finishing their group matches in the
In such a vast country, there was an early
plan to revert to the arrangements once used
in World Cups where teams were based in
one region instead of travelling all over the
country but Brazilian organisers did not
want one region to stage all of Brazil s first
As that was not politically expedient,
FIFA agreed every team had to travel all
over, resulting in the huge distances covered,
apart from those in group H where the
venues are relatively close.
e team drawn in position E3 has the
unenviable task of playing in the wintry cool
of Porto Alegre then the tropical heat of
Salvador in its first two group matches.
With the World Cup less than 200 days
away and with roads, airport buildings,
stadiums and other infrastructure projects
unlikely to be ready or abandoned altogether,
Brazil s problems seemed a long way away in
the idyllic resort setting of Costa do Suape
in Bahia state where the draw takes place.
Representatives of the eight countries to
have won the World Cup will assist in the
draw with organisers saying that Pele would

Brazil still faces to be ready in time for next
year s big kick-off.
e prizemoney at next
year s World Cup finals
will be increased by at
least a third from that
on offer in South Africa
in 2010, FIFA general
secretary Jerome Valcke
e overall prizemoney
for the tournament will
rise to approximately
$560 million, around
$140m more than the
$420m available in 2010,
when $30m was on offer
to the winners.
It means the winners of
next year s tournament
in Brazil will pick up
" ere will be a large
increase of at least
33% if you compare
(the prizemoney) with
the last World Cup,
but this figure will be
confirmed after the
finance committee meets
speaking at a news
conference at the resort
in Bahia state where the
draw for the finals will
take place on Friday, told
"Also, there will be
around $70m available
to the clubs who provide
players for the teams in
the World Cup, higher
than last time as well."
Valcke said full details
of the prizemoney would
be announced tomorrow.
e prizemoney available
in South Africa was 60%
higher than that offered
for the 2006 finals in
Germany. --- Reuters

Major League Soccer
wants a new team in
Miami backed by England
icon David Beckham,
but MLS commissioner
Don Garber said today
that the deal still lacks a
downtown stadium deal.
"We can t go into Miami
without the right stadium
solution," Garber said in
his annual state of the
league comments, which
came four days before
Sporting Kansas City
hosts Real Salt Lake in the MLS Cup
championship play-off final.
Garber refused to put a timetable on
the project or address the notion that
Beckham faces time pressures under
terms of his former MLS playing
contract that gave him rights to an
expansion club at a discounted rate.
"We re very excited about the
opportunity of David putting together
an ownership group and finalising a
site in downtown Miami so we can
have our 22nd team," Garber said.
"But there s a lot of work that needs
Garber said that there will be an
MLS board meeting on Friday and
Beckham s Miami bid "will be a key
subject at that board meeting but they
are not coming with a proposal for us."
Bolivian-born billionaire Marcelo
Claure and British entrepreneur
Simon Fuller are said to be two of the
project s backers with
even NBA Miami Heat
star LeBron James having
spoken about it with
television reports in
Miami say Beckham is
interested in a downtown
port site for a stadium of
about 25,000 seats.
But no deal is done and
Garber made it clear no
team will come without it.
"We want to work with
David and Simon Fuller
to get something done as quickly as we
can," Garber said.
"We re making progress in Miami
with David Beckham and his partners.
We believe Miami can work if we have
the right stadium situation. We re not
there yet. But we hope to get there

get David Beckham and his partners

from March-December to align with

Heat on Fifa ahead of World Cup draw
Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy is
resigned to star fullback Billy Slater
having to nurse his knee problem for the
rest of his rugby league career.
Slater overcame a knee injury to be one
of standout players in Australia s World
Cup final win over New Zealand in
England at the weekend.
He had hurt his left knee a fortnight
before the final and only made the
decider after intensive treatment.
"When he first hurt it in Origin last
year, the medical advice then was that it s
going to be an issue for the rest of his
career," Bellamy said yesterday.
"It s going to take some managing and
that s what it is at the moment."
But Bellamy said he never had concerns
about Slater playing in the final.
"We were very confident that Tim
(Kangaroos coach Tim Sheens) and the
medical staff wouldn t let him play unless
he was (right)," Bellamy said.
Bellamy also took the chance for a
quiet dig at NRL referees ahead of next
"It was really good to see he got a
couple of penalties as well," Bellamy said
of Slater in the World Cup.
"He was taken without the ball a
couple of times and the English referee
picked that up.
"Hopefully there s a couple of signs
there that our referees might be able to
see the same thing next year."
Bellamy was less pleased about the
scheduling pressures on the game s
biggest stars like Slater.
He would like to see a shorter World
Cup format in future and would prefer
no NRL games during the State of
e Storm s World Cup representatives
won t resume training with the club until
"All of us here at club-land are worried
about the workload of our elite players,"
"Us coaches have been going on about
that for a while."
