    I have foxtel and really enjoyed watching the Worcester Northampton game in the build up the big one at Twickenham. Huge game for the Warriors against a team struggling for their top 4 reputation, albeit missing a couple on Intl duty.

    Give a few weeks and we can watch Tafa suit up in Green, white & red alongside Dan Cole ...

    Of course I watched the game and loved it. Loved Chieka's reaction too ! Not sure who he called a cheat though, the ref? Hooper was clearly offside and as an Intl capt must know the laws ... read his quotes about that incident ... hands up in the air means I'm onside now !!!

    NO matter what is going on in Australian rugby, even if I lose interest in the Wallabies, nothing will ever get me to barrack for England in rugby union - soccer or league maybe, but never union. Not even Mrs Annie Underwood cheering her sons at Twickenham could do that, and I thought she was great!

    Yeah I have to say, my overwhelming attitude to this tour is ambivalence. I had planned to watch last night because I thought it was a good chance for the Wallabies prima donnas to get shown up and it appears that happened, I wasn't sure until I saw the highlights package on the news which was all about Cheika sooking and calling the ref a cheat.

    To be fair, I saw the Hooper disallowed try and I thought it was a rough-ish call. You can clearly see him attempting to pull out of the play when he was offside from the first kick and the second kick was in front of him, so I thought he had been run onside. On the other hand, he didn't stop and he didn't actually retire (i thought he was running across field) so it's a lineball decision that didn't go their way.

    I'd have to see the whole game to tell if there was a conspiracy and I just don't care enough to do that. It still doesn't excuse a tantrum of that magnitude

    Saw the whole thing the ref was fine apart from pulling the advantage which England had that was knocked back by the Wallabies

    Yeah, only saw the Hooper one.

    I would have called him run onside, it was only on seeing replays that I thought there might be a case for not retiring.

    Not a huge one, probably just a tough call, if others had been called that way, I'd call it no foul play on.

    Regardless, Michael Cheika has now told any Rugby Union who is organising a home test against the Wallatahs which ref to hire. Ben O'Keefe will never give the Wallabies a fair shake again, because he's been vilified by pretty much the entire team.

    Or maybe he's just the latest one on a growing list.

    Cheika will beg for Wayne Barnes next June as Ireland have a bad win rate with him at the whistle.

    Nothing will get me to support England in anything and I was born there! And what is it about singing a slave song? surely it must offend half the players! I watched the game and thought that the Wallabies had some good plays with the 50/50 calls going against them. However nothing can excuse Chieka's attitude, its got to the stage now were the camera is on him just about as much as the game to get a shot of him carrying on

    Hooper failed to retreat and continued advancing while in an offside position allowing to get to the ball first. Definitely offside.

    Moore prevented Robshaw making a tackle which led to Korobeite crossing the line but even then there was no clear grounding.
    Englands try where the ball was close to touch could have gone either way but no replay showed the ball clearly in touch so decisionstayed on field.
    Tough calls on Aus but correct ones.
    I supported England for my first 32 years before coming here. Never had a reason to change (especially now)
    Great to see England beat the ERU again

    For that England try, it did look as though the England winger (Daly?) might have been ahead of the kicker when the ball was kicked, but I never got to see a decent angle on the replay. But even if that had been looked at, it wouldn't have changed the outcome of the match
