Force captain Nathan Sharpe has come out to defend the Force and described reports coming out of New Zealand that he and fellow Force star Matt Giteau had fallen out with coach John Mitchell as “rubbish”.

“I just signed a three-year deal over there. I wouldn’t sign for three years if I was unhappy in a certain area”.

”Complete rubbish. I don’t know where they got those things from,” Sharpe told News24.

“I know for a fact that Gits’ problem, or what he wants to get sorted out, is the contractual thing off the field.”

“Certainly he’s got no problems with Mitch. He gets on really well with him.”

“Those reports are a bit scandalous. We love a good scandal in the west.”

Sharpe is hoping to be named in the Wallaby line up to face New Zealand in the Tri Nations decider after the 64-Test veteran had been dropped for the first time since his national debut in 2002.
