Eddie Jones handed major World Cup boost with star’s latest injury update

If Eddie Jones is to have any chance of winning the World Cup later this year with Australia, he will need plenty of the Wallabies’ big guns to return from injury.

Australia’s injury list over the past nine months has been the stuff of legend, and Dave Rennie ultimately could not get the results he wanted with a depleted squad.

Fortunately for Jones, there have been positive signs recently from fly-half Quade Cooper, who has been out since August after rupturing his Achilles against Argentina. The 34-year-old faces a race to be fit in time for the World Cup later this year, but his latest post of social media from him will fill Wallabies fans with confidence. The Hanazono Kintetsu Liners No10 is “learning to run again,” which sounds like slow progress, but six months is still a long time in terms of recovery, and there is still a lot of rugby to be played before then.

Take a look at Cooper’s post:

A post shared by QC (@quadecooper)

“Progress of process. To be able to do these small actions today has required months and months of daily work on my process which in turn has allowed me to progress enough to be able to jump and start learning to run again. For me the key to growth is not being scared of the work needed to be able to climb the mountain. If I was to look at the work needed to get to today, from day one, it may have seemed too much… but the ability to break down this journey into a small hill to climb has meant the task has been tough… but enjoyable. I get DMs everyday asking about how I stay motivated, but for me motivation is an added bonus we have some days. It’s the ability to break down the journey into a smaller process of gradual achievements that turn into daily habits.”
