Hooper a chance to miss Wales clash due to suspension

THE Wallabies could be without vice-captain Michael Hooper for the final World Cup pool match against Wales after he was cited for alleged foul play.

The forward was cited over an incident late in the first half of Saturday’s crushing 33-13 victory over England and Twickenham, where he cleared out England fullback Mike Brown in the ruck.

It’s alleged he “charged into the ruck or maul without use of the arms or grasping the player”.


Hooper, who was penalised but not yellow-carded for the incident, faces a hearing on Tuesday.

If found guilty, he will miss the Wales clash on Saturday (Sunday AEDT), which will decide top spot in Pool A.
