Discarded Queensland Reds and Wallaby flyhalf Quade Cooper returned to action on the weekend, turning out for Souths in their opening club rugby match in Brisbane.

The 29-year-old turned in a sublime performance showing off an array of passing skills. It seems that Quade learned a few offloading tricks from Sonny Bill Williams over the summer, pulling off a number of freakish offloads during the game.

His passing game opened up the attack for Souths, creating second phase ball with the offloading and spreading the ball to the edges with multiple long balls. They ended up winning the game 39-31 in a high-scoring affair.

Enjoy the silky skills of the mercurial playmaker.
