Australia's Rugby Championship victory over Argentina was marred today when footage emerged after the game of a violent off the ball attack.

Wallabies flanker, Michael Hooper, appeared to strike Nicolas Sanchez during his side's bonus point win over the South Americans and now he will probably miss the decider with New Zealand.

Originally, we were watching the clip wondering how many missed tackles went in as the Aussies stormed through the try line with bodies throwing themselves all over the floor and then we realised that one them was forced to ground with a vicious punch.

Hooper looks to be tugged back by Sanchez - off the ball, behind the play - and he reacts in the most extreme way that will definitely make the Argentine fly half think twice about doing it again.

But the Australian is surely in for a ban that will - hopefully - make him think twice before he bins someone so easily again.
