  1. It's not hard to determine the offside if you read the rule book section 11. Professional players should be across this, it's these differences that are the reasons they get paid to play.

  2. hooper, 'hands up'that doesnt put you onside, its is only fine if you stop moving forward to the try line

  3. I feel a bit sorry for Cheika in this press conference, even as an Englishmen, He starts off saying we don't want to make excuses rugby but is then asked question after question regarding the TMO…Whats a man to do??

  4. Checked back and the Aus player didnt make contact with the ball so Hooper was 100% still offside. Shame because it was good play that led up to it.

  5. World rugby is a joke hes right no point. Steve Hansen is still waiting for an answer from the refs in the Lions series. World rugby is all about the NH and thats it

  6. Rather than whining about unfair decisions and disallowed try, (btw the deliberate knock on stopped a straight forward run in try for England with no one left at the back) Cheika, and to a greater extent Rugby Australia, need to address a far bigger overall issue. Under Cheika, Australia have a win ration of 54%! Yep, you read that correctly, 54% which is dreadful and would get most coaches sacked long before now. Another major issue is the discipline of their captain. I for one am a huge fan of his general game, he really is a fabulous talent, but the sheer number of cards he has picked up over the last 18 months is not a coincidence.
