Who is Gavin Cooper?

Gavin Cooper is an Australian professional rugby league player for the North Queensland Cowboys in the National Rugby League. He is currently in his second spell with the Cowboys, having also played in the NRL for the Penrith Panthers and the Gold Coast Titans. Cooper primarily plays in the second row, the position he prefers, but has also played in the centres.

Cooper started his NRL career with the Cowboys before moving to the Gold Coast Titans for the club's inaugural season in 2007. A good season made him a contender for selection to Queensland's State of Origin team. However, in 2008 Cooper had limited game time for the Titans and accepted a contract to play for the Penrith Panthers from 2009. After two seasons with the Panthers, Cooper returned to the North Queensland Cowboys on a contract for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. In 2011 he was a regular member of the Cowboys' first-grade side that made the NRL finals, and was named the team's "Club Person of the Year", because of his hard work on and off the field.
