Quade Cooper to the Highlanders? Fake news according to the Super Rugby franchise.
The Otago Daily Times this morning reported rumours of the Wallabies and Reds fly-half heading south for next season.
With Lima Sopoaga heading to England, the Highlanders are on the hunt for a number 10 who has significant experience.

Cooper, who was born in New Zealand, was told by new Reds coach Brad Thorn he was not wanted by the Reds at the start of the season and has been playing club rugby in Brisbane.
The Highlanders have until the end of October to complete their squad so have plenty of time to find someone.
