It is expected that new Australia head coach Ewen McKenzie will announce an initial 40-man squad in preparation for the 2013 Rugby Championship.

According to AAP, this Friday's press conference will see the former Reds boss cast the net far and wide, naming a crop that includes Quade Cooper.

Cooper has not played for the Wallabies since being axed by Robbie Deans and his return could see him feature in their opening game, against the All Blacks in Sydney on August 17.
