4:51 pm on 19 May 2011

First five Quade Cooper has signed a contract extension with the Australian Rugby Union to remain with the Wallabies and Queensland Reds until the end of 2012.

The 23-year-old has made the Wallabies number 10 shirt his own over the last couple of years and helped fire the Reds to the top of the Super rugby standings.

The New Zealand-born Cooper flirted with a move to rugby league last season before signing a one-year deal to keep him in union through this year's World Cup.
