After highlighting a blooper from his match against the Brumbies, its only fair to show what Quade Cooper is still fully capable of at the elite level. Fox Sports has put together this sweet video with the star mic’d up during the Reds at-the-death win at the weekend.
On top of showing some fancy footwork and other tangible assets, Cooper also displayed good leadership skills by keeping the communication and encouragement flowing.
Perhaps the most notable moment is when he, Izaia Perese and Karmichael Hunt orchestrate a crucial inside pass coming off the scrum that would set up the match winning kick for Cooper.
Whether you’re a Cooper and Reds fan or not, it’s great to get this insight into how key players handle the pressure of the big moments.
The camera and mic also captured another nice exchange, between Cooper and a ball boy, who now has a pretty valuable memento from the game.
It was a great victory for the Reds as they downed the conference-topping Brumbies for the first time in three years and five games.
