Forgotten rugby star joins Wallabies

Forgotten rugby star joins Wallabies James O’Connor has completed the first part of the piece that is his return to rugby in Australia. The 44-test Wallaby was spotted today training with the national squad, under the watchful eye of Head Coach, Michael Cheika, in Brisbane. The 28-year-old’s presence at the training session indicates he has signed a contract with Rugby Australia, but no announcement has been made because details are still being worked out for his return to Ballymore to play for the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

Quade Cooper has been omitted from Michael Cheika’s extended Wallabies squad ahead of next month’s Bledisloe Cup opener against the All Blacks. Cooper ’s omission is his first based on form since former Wallaby coach Robbie Deans left him out of the 2013 British and Irish Lions series.

Returning utility James O'Connor was not considered for selection, the Wallabies said.

Cooper started the Super Rugby season in career-best form but appears to be one of the casualties of the Rebels' implosion in the back half of the season.

Cheika and the other Wallabies selectors, Scott Johnson and Michael O'Connor, favoured Leali'ifano and Matt Toomua as potential No.10 options alongside incumbent Bernard Foley in a 34-man squad named in Brisbane on Monday.

Phipps, a Cheika regular in past Wallabies squads, has been overlooked in favour of White and Brumbies halfback Joe Powell, in a move that partially rewards form but also signals that incumbency means little as the Wallabies search for solutions to a poor few years for the gold jersey.
