Cooper ready to resume after shoulder injury

QUADE Cooper looks set for a return to international rugby with the Wallabies against the All Blacks next Saturday after he was named in coach Ewen McKenzie's 32-man squad.

With Bernard Foley the only other recognised fly-half, it appears as though Cooper could get a spot in the final 23-man squad due to be named next week for the game at Suncorp Stadium next Saturday.

Cooper (pictured), who injured his shoulder playing for the Reds in May, has been joined in the squad by four uncapped players.

Brumbies winger Henry Speight has been included, but while he will train with the Wallabies next week he will not be included for selection while he continues his recovery from an injured hamstring.

Other uncapped players in the squad are tight-head prop Tetera Faulkner and centre Kyle Goodwin of the Western Force, and Melbourne Rebels winger Tom English.
