Cooper commits to Reds

Wallabies flyhalf Quade Cooper has signed a new three-year contract with the Reds.

The new deal will see Cooper remaining in Australia until the 2015 World Cup. This ends speculation that Cooper would defect to rugby league at the end of the 2012 season.

Cooper is not in the Wallabies’ match 22 this week, but is expected to make his comeback to Test rugby at some point in the series against Wales.
