Quade Cooper: Has committed to the Wallabies
Quade Cooper has ended his dispute with the Australian Rugby Union by agreeing a new two-year deal.
Cooper's future had been in doubt following his publicly spat with the Wallabies, with the enigmatic fly-half fined $60,000 after he criticised a "toxic environment" within the camp.
Cooper announced he would make his professional boxing debut in February after rejecting an incentive-based contract.
However the 24-year-old has now committed to playing for the national team and the Reds for the next two seasons.
"It's no secret that I have a strong passion and desire to represent Queensland and Australia," he said.
"I love playing for the Reds and the Wallabies.
"It's a great feeling to know that things are sorted and now I can continue to improve as a player and as a member of the Queensland Reds and the Wallabies.
"I'm confident I'll front for round one in peak physical condition and primed to play the best rugby in my career."
