Cooper ready for Wallabies Rugby Championhip

The Wallabies are confident that Quade Cooper will be fit to feature for Australia in their Rugby Championship opening match against South Africa at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

Cooper arrived at the Wallabies training camp with a shoulder injury that has been troubling him since the match in the final round of the regular Super Rugby season.

Cooper has been in the headlines lately over his move to Toulon and he needs just seven more Test caps to be eligible for the Wallabies whilst playing abroad.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has indicated that he wants Cooper to play a part in the condensed Rugby Championships and the World Cup this year.

There are three Tests in the Rugby Championship and then an extra Bledisloe Cup test so if Cooper features in all four Tests he would only need three caps at the Rugby World Cup.

The Wallabies had hoped to keep the injury low profile but Cooper recently confirmed that he had been trated by a doctor and now an ARU spokesman said that they are confident the injury is not serious and the playmaker will be ready for Test duty.

“We’re confident Quade will be available for selection in the opening round of The Rugby Championship in Brisbane against the Springboks,” the spokesman told Rugby Heaven.
