Accusations that England sent a spy to the camp of upcoming Rugby World Cup opponents Australia have been denied.

According to Neil Syson in the Sun, a man with a camera was chased by security guards after being found spying on Australia’s closed training session from nearby bushes.

Per Syson, Australia officials reported the incident to Rugby World Cup chiefs and England have been accused of tasking the man to gather tactical information for them ahead of their must-win clash against them on Saturday.
