Giteau has no problems with John Mitchell

6:56 am on 13 January 2009

The Western Force rugby first five Matt Giteau insists he has no problem with coach John Mitchell and says he is happy in Perth and will consider re-signing with the Super 14 club beyond 2009.

Giteau reportedly threatened to walk out on the Force last year to join his former club the Brumbies when his lucrative third party sponsorship deal collapsed.

There were also reports that Giteau was amongst a bevy of players unhappy with Mitchell's behaviour.

But Giteau rejects claims he was involved in the player revolt that has led to the independent inquiry into Mitchell.
