Bastareaud and Ouedraogo in support of Quade Cooper, seriously injured

On Saturday, the opening half of the Rugby Championship, Australia’s flyhalf suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during the game against Argentina. A serious injury that will keep Quade Cooper (34 years old, 75 caps) away from the field for many months. Compromising his participation in the World Cup in France in a year and a month. A prospect that the former Toulon player refuses. “I’m ready and prepared for this journeyposted number 10 on Instagram. That doesn’t mean it will be easy. But I’ve prepared for the challenge ahead by building routines and habits to guide me through every obstacle in my path. Prepare for the storm so you’re strong enough to weather it…»

Quade Cooper also thanks his teammates, the Argentine players and the supporters for “for their support and attention“. A message that elicited many responses of comfort, including some from illustrious adversaries. Thus TJ Perenara, Ngani Laumape, Lima Sopoaga, James O’Connor, Joe Tomane, Tim Nanai Williams or Duncan Paia’aua, but also Mathieu Bastareaud and Fulgence Ouedraogo.
