Cape Town - Flyhalf Quade Cooper is back in the Wallabies' plans for 2019, according to a report.

The website reported over the weekend that the 30-year-old playmaker joined up with the national squad in Sydney after they had spent the week there in a conditioning camp. 

Cooper, who will be playing for the Rebels in Super Rugby this year, has not represented the Wallabies since June 2017. 

Considered one of the most unpredictable and instinctive flyhalves in Australian rugby, Cooper was told by the Reds last year that he was no longer part of their plans. 

Now with a fresh start at the Rebels, he will be wanting to make a play for the World Cup squad that will travel to Japan at the end of the year. 

Cooper has played 70 Tests for Australia since making his debut in 2008 and he played in both the 2011 and 2015 World Cups.
