Cooper’s classy act with homeless man

Just days out from his Super Rugby return, Quade Cooper has been seen performing a selfless act of kindness in Melbourne.

The fallen Wallaby, who was on Wednesday named at fly-half for his first match for the Rebels after being forced to leave by the Reds in 2018, was walking down the streets of Melbourne when he walked past a homeless person sitting by a convenience store.

Without a second thought, the 70-Test star walked into the 7-Eleven store and bought some food and a soft drink.

One of Cooper's trainers, 'Coach Sunz', filmed the mercurial playmaker's kind act and posted the vision on social media with the following message.

"REAL MEDIA.. walked pass this guy today.. next thing @QuadeCooper is missing... comes out of the store with food for him... #respect 🙏🏾 @MelbourneRebels @WorldRugby".

Cooper later retweeted the vision and added: "We all need a little love from time to time.."

The Rebels recruit won wide praise for his charitable deed on social media.

The 30-year-old was told his services were no longer required by Brad Thorn in late 2017 despite having two years left on his contract with the Reds.
