Rugby: Quade Cooper left out of Wallaby squad for Lions

Fly-half Quade Cooper was left out of the 25-man Wallaby squad named on Sunday to play the touring British and Irish Lions in next month's three-Test series, the Australian Rugby Union said.

Coach Robbie Deans omitted the World Cup number 10 and instead chose James O'Connor as fly-half in the Wallaby squad, to be led by lock James Horwill. Israel Folau was also included in the squad.
