Sharpe rubbishes reports of Force revolt

6:38 pm on 8 September 2008

The Western Force captain Nathan Sharpe has rubbished a report from New Zealand that he and fellow Wallabies star Matt Giteau want out because they are sick of coach John Mitchell.

Sharpe is expected to return to Australia's second-row for Saturday night's Tri-Nations in Brisbane and says the Sunday News report is wrong and scandalous.

He says he's just signed a three-year deal in Perth and Giteau's problems at the Force are related to his contract and not difficulties dealing with the former All Black coach Mitchell, with whom he gets on well.
