Cape Town - Reds
flyhalf Quade Cooper has reportedly re-injured the knee that has kept him out
of rugby since last year’s World Cup.
The Courier-Mail in Brisbane reported on Thursday that the Reds
playmaker, who had anticipated returning to Super Rugby soon, “tweaked” the
knee while playing a game of touch rugby.
He went to a private hospital there on Thursday for scans to
ascertain the extent of the latest damage.
The single-minded No 10 had arranged the game after issuing
an appeal on Twitter for a place in any “touch” team to aid his rehabilitation.
He has been back in non-contact training with Super Rugby
champions the Reds, although young Sam Lane, educated at Bishops in Cape Town,
keeps his current spot in the team to play the Stormers at Suncorp Stadium on
