Returning to Australia on Tuesday  after a quarter-final loss to England in the Rugby World Cup, both Michael Hooper and David Pocock expressed disappointment over the campaign.

Captain Hooper told media in Sydney that there would be a full review into the England game, adding that it was a rebuilding process for the team while praising the efforts of team coach, Michael Cheika.

Player David Pocock added that he held personal disappointment over the way the Wallabies campaign ended and for the team’s supporters.

Rugby Australia has pledged a thorough review of Australia’s tournament but a slew of former players and pundits have called for an independent review, saying the governing body must be held to account for the team’s equal-worst performance at a World Cup.
