SYDNEY, July 2 (Reuters) – The Wallabies suffered a major blow just before the start of the first of three July tests against England when flyhalf Quade Cooper was ruled out of the match after suffering a calf injury during the warm-up at Perth Stadium on Saturday. Cooper, who revived his international career last year, will be replaced in the starting team by Noah Lolesio with James O’Connor coming onto the bench as back-up playmaker.
