PRO14 Side Set To Make Audacious Move For Quade Cooper

What a coup this would be.

The Dragons are lining up an audacious bid to sign Australia outhalf Quade Cooper.

The Wallabies playmaker is currently assessing his options, after being told by new Queensland Red boss Brad Thorne that he is not wanted and to find a new club.

BBC Wales are reporting that Bernard Jackman and his Dragons team have held informal talks about a possible move, as they continue their ambitious plans to become the top team in Wales.

The Dragons have already made high-profile acquisitions for next season, with Wales back-rower Ross Moriarty joining from Gloucester on a two-year deal, and talks underway to sign George North

Scrumhalf Rhodri Williams and fullback Jordan Williams are also joining from Bristol. But a move for 70-cap Cooper would no doubt be their biggest statement of intent yet.
