WATCH: New camera angle vindicates Michael Hooper from controversial sand-throwing incident
Upon looking at the first angle, Hooper looked bang to rights.
The Australian scrum needed all the help it could get against a dominant English pack. The Wallabies needed Hooper to pack down and assist his tighthead.
Instead, an overhead camera appeared to show the openside tossing a handful of sand into the eyes of opposite number James Haskell.

There was no stopping Haskell, however, as he made tackle after tackle after tackle for the English cause.
Eddie Jones' men won 23-7 to claim their first ever Test series Down Under.
