VIDEO: Wallabies star busted shoving over Pumas trainer

WALLABY Nick Phipps was at it again.

In August it was All Black Malakai Fekitoa's boot on the receiving end of Phipps' frustration. This time, it was an Argentine trainer.

During the Wallabies' Rugby Championship match against the Pumas at Twickenham this morning, Phipps thought the cameras were off him when he decided to shove an Argentine medic to the ground.

Up 25-18 with 13 minutes to go, Phipps is seen to push the trainer as he rushed out to an injured Puma.

Argentine winger Matias Moroni took exception to the act, while Phipps laughed it off and gave the Pumas a chirp.

The trainer appeared to be fine but Phipps may face disciplinary action for the incident.

The Wallabies went on to win the match 33-21.

In a Bledisloe Cup match in August, Phipps was seen pulling the boot off Fekitoa and throwing it into the Wallabies' in-goal area.
