6:35 am on 27 July 2015

The Wallabies flanker Michael Hooper is in doubt for Australia's Rugby Championship decider against the All Blacks next month after being cited for an alleged foul against Argentina at the weekend.

Hooper was cited by SANZAR 12 hours after the Wallabies' bonus-point victory over the Pumas in Mendoza.

After coming off the bench, the former skipper is alleged to have punched or struck Argentina's halfback Nicolas Sanchez midway through the second half.

The All Blacks-Australia test is on the 8th August, in Sydney.
