This might not be the last Nick Phipps will hear of this…
Australia beat Argentina in Twickenham yesterday to finish off the Rugby Championship on a high. The Wallabies now face into a grueling Autumn schedule, starting against New Zealand, before returning to Europe to face Wales, Scotland, France, Ireland and England.
However, yesterday’s victory was not all pretty, and things turned ugly when scrum-half Nick Phipps was running to get the ball, and pushed the Argentina physio out of his way.
Naturally, the Argentina players took exception to this, and confronted the Wallaby.
There wasn’t a huge amount of sympathy for the scrum-half.
Nick Phipps, give yourself a red card you fool. I think the number on your back is the same as your IQ #ARGvAUS

Nick is an absolute embarrassment , shameful to push a physio to the ground. Surely more to come on that.
