Quade Cooper set to depart Queensland Reds in Brad Thorn shake-up


Quade Cooper’s stint at Queensland Reds looks to have ended after he was reportedly told he is no longer part of the club’s plans.

The 29-year-old fly-half was expected to report back for training at the Super Rugby outfit on Monday but has been informed by new coach Brad Thorn he probably won’t be involved in the forthcoming campaign.

“I’ve had an honest conversation with Quade and where he currently sits in our plans,” Thorn told the Courier-Mail.

“He’s not training with the Reds at the moment and training with his club (Brisbane City) instead.”

Capped 70 times, the skilful playmaker’s Test career also appears over after having been left out of coach Michael Cheika’s Wallabies squad since his last match against Italy five months ago.

Cooper was brought back by Queensland in 2015 from French club Toulon and still has two seasons left on his Reds contract.
