Australia’s chances of a test win against England have been dealt a blow before the first game has even kicked off.
Fly half Quade Cooper hobbled off during the warmup and now will not play in the opening test between the old foes of England and Australia.
Fans across the world were excited to see Cooper back in the famous green and gold but it seems as though they will have to wait before they get to see him in action.
Cooper suffered the ankle injury only 10 minutes before kickoff and Noah Lolesio will now start at 10 instead for the Wallabies.
Hopefully the rugby world will get to see the Smith V Cooper matchup before the summer is over.
