• Cooper returns to Reds

    Wallabies flyhalf Quade Cooper has signed a three-year contract with the Australian Rugby Union.

    Cooper played 105 Super Rugby matches from 2007 before moving to French club Toulon in 2015 where he had mixed success.

    Cooper said he had missed Test rugby during his spell in France.

    'For me, playing at the highest level for the Wallabies against the best teams in the world, week in, week out is the ultimate.

    'Being back in Australia and having the opportunity to play for the Wallabies is something that drives me every day and being around my friends and family in Queensland is equally important for me.'
