Queensland Reds five-eighth Quade Cooper’s hopes of playing in Saturday night’s Super Rugby qualifying final rests with a SANZAR judicial hearing on Monday afternoon.

Cooper was sin-binned and cited for a high tackle on NSW centre Berrick Barnes in the Reds’ 32-16 win at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

Following initial consideration by duty judicial officer Nicholas Davidson QC on Sunday, Cooper must front a Monday judicial hearing, held by Paul Tully via video conference at 2pm (AEST).

A SANZAR statement said Cooper was alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 when he tackled Barnes in the 63rd minute, making contact above the line of the shoulders.
