Quade Cooper brilliant individual try in Queensland final

Quade Cooper brilliant individual try in Queensland final

This is a short clip but it's of a moment of brilliance from young Wallaby back Quade Cooper while playing in the 2009 Queensland Premier Grand Final at Ballymore this past weekend.

Cooper, playing for Souths, went down 22-16 to Brothers, who picked up their first premiership win in 22 years.

It was a fitting send off for former Wallaby and Queensland Reds flanker David Croft, who has announced his retirement.

"Im just so happy, its a magnificent feeling and its a good way to go out," Croft said during the post match celebrations.

Cooper was on the losing side, but contributed to the match after Souths had done a last minute reshuffle, with him catching a 6am flight out of Wellington via Sydney to join the team.

He made his presence felt early on in the match with a stunning 65m try that saw him bring out a few of his trademark steps, show great acceleration, and then throw a superb dummy and hand off right at the end.
