Quade Cooper was Dave Rennie’s surprise by calling him up for the Rugby Championship and, for Ian Foster, this did not go unnoticed. At a press conference, the All Blacks head coach gave his opinion on the return of the back to the Australian team.
Foster commented that with Cooper’s return, the Wallabies will have a lot of chances to win after two months without a win.. After three failed performances by Noah Lolesio, the experienced back will start the next game against the Springboks.
The 33-year-old will reach 70 caps in the Aussie jersey against the South African team, after being absent for four years. “His arrival generates a lot of interest, particularly for Australia, but I haven’t seen him play Quade for two or three years.“declared the New Zealand Head Coach. “In a way, when it comes to losses, looking for a change to give the team a different air … He definitely brings that.”Foster concluded with a compliment on Cooper.
