Will Genia and Quade Cooper have hit the training paddock at Ballymore, adding fuel to speculation of a return to Queensland Reds.

That certainly looks to be the case for Cooper at least, who must be signed to an Australian Super Rugby franchise to be available for the Rugby Championship which kicks off in August.

As Cooper hasn’t played the required 60 Tests that would make him eligible regardless of current club commitments, he must secure a deal with an Australian franchise before the tournament begins.

He recently confirmed he wouldn’t be taking up the second year of his contract with French club Toulon, further giving rise to talk of a return to Ballymore or even a rumoured move to Melbourne Rebels.
