Controversial Wallabies playmaker Quade Cooper has turned up to a pre-season training with his Queensland Reds teammates ahead of Monday afternoon's announcement on his rugby future.

Cooper is set to have a 3pm (NZT) press conference with good friend Sonny Bill Williams, who is expected to announce details of his next boxing bout in February.

Cooper, who is unhappy with a downgraded, incentive-based Australian Rugby Union contract, is reportedly going to feature on the undercard of the Williams fight at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

But Cooper's participation at Reds training at Ballymore is a sign that he will remain playing Super Rugby with Queensland, who's 2013 season kicks off on February 16 against the Brumbies.

Recovering from knee surgery, Cooper underwent physio therapy before taking part in a weights session at the Ballymore gym.
