    Wallabies pivot Quade Cooper will take his Australian citizenship test today, finally allowing him to officially call his adopted home

    Wallabies pivot Quade Cooper will take his Australian citizenship test today, finally allowing him to officially call his adopted home


    The New Zealand-born player, who's played 75 tests for Australia, was unhappy his four previous applications for citizenship had been rejected because of the unique difficulties he faced meeting the requirements as an international sportsman.

    But after the Australian government changed eligibility rules to ensure "distinguished applicants" like him could be made citizens, Cooper is now taking the test again in Japan where he's currently playing for Hanazono Kintetsu Liners.
