Full name: Quade CooperDate of birth: April 5 1988Place of birth: Tokoroa, New ZealandHeight: 1.86 m Weight: 92 kgNickname: Coops, QCSchool: Brisbane Anglican Church Grammar SchoolPosition: Flyhalf, fullback, inside centreClub: Souths, Queensland RedsQuade Cooper is arguably one of the most talented young players in world rugby and will be a key player for Australia at the 2011 Rugby World Cup. The Wallaby star’s pace, guile and flair allow him to ghost through half gaps, while his creativity is often the source tries for his team mates. However, the 23-year-old's critics will be quick to point out that his game has several weaknesses. Criticisms of Cooper’s play include his defensive shortcomings, his lack of positional sense and his inconsistent form. The 1.86 metre tall, 96 kilogram flyhalf went some way to disproving his detractors during the 2011 Super Rugby season, but doubts remain as to whether he will be able to produce consistently at the highest level.Cooper was born in Auckland, New Zealand on April 5 1988, but moved to Tokoroa when he was one year old. He stayed in the area until he was fourteen when his family relocated to Brisbane, Australia. In Brisbane, Cooper’s undeniable talent earned him a scholarship to the Anglican Church Grammar School and he was soon drafted into the Queensland rugby system The Reds playmaker represented the union at under 16 and school boy level before being called up to the Australian Schools team alongside future Wallabies such as David Pocock, Kurtley Beale, Lachlan Turner and Rob Simmons.Cooper made his senior debut against the Crusaders in 2007, at just 19 years old, and has since gone on to amass 60 Super Rugby caps and score close to 400 points for the Brisbane based side.In 2008 Cooper was awarded his first international cap for the Wallabies, against Italy in Padova, but his international career stagnated the following year due to inconsistent form and off-field problems (including a burglary charge).However, the Super Rugby winner managed to reverse his floundering form and became a fixture in the side after a series of electrifying performances in the 2010 Super 14. The flyhalf was selected as the Super 14 player of that season and has continued his excellent form in 2011, guiding the Reds to their first title in the competition’s history.
