Can I plant this moldy/fungusy rose bush?

Just unwrapped my recently delivered William Baffin rose, to discover a lot of clumpy white and green mould or fungus all over the roots.
This is the first rose I've planted, so I have no idea if this is normal (nitrogen nodules?) or if it is, as my instincts say, a very unhealthy thing (kill it with fire).

- Is it safe to plant it?
- Will planting it taint the soil?
- Can I wash it off with soap and oil and kill it thereby?
- Bonus question: Am I supposed to leaves the packing fibre around it when I plant it? So clueless.
Alas poor roots.
