Brisbane - Wallabies flyhalf Quade Cooper says a fractured collarbone, which will rule him out of the first half of the Super Rugby season, is unlikely to derail his bid to play at this year's Rugby World Cup.

Cooper will have surgery on Tuesday to repair the injury that he suffered in a training accident and will be sidelined for 12 weeks.

The 26-year-old said it was better the injury happened now "rather than two months before the World Cup or a month before."

He said; "Something like a collarbone I can live with. If it was a knee injury, a reconstruction or another shoulder injury, that's when you get a bit down."
