Hooper out of Wales clash after recieving one-week ban
- Wales and Australia will battle to finish top of Pool A
- Hooper banned for one-week for clearing out Mike Brown
- Sean McMahon will likely replace the 23-year-old in the Wallabies starting XV
Michael Hooper will be unavailable for Saturday’s Rugby World Cup Pool A decider against Wales at Twickenham after being suspended for one week.
The flanker was cited yesterday for clearing out Mike Brown at a ruck during the Wallabies’ 33-13 win against England, which subsequently eliminated the hosts.
The 23-year-old is expected to be replaced by Sean McMahon, who showed his skill with two superb tries against Uruguay at Villa Park a fortnight ago.
Wales and Australia have both qualified for the World Cup quarter-finals but will battle to finish top of the Pool this Saturday.
