BBC Sport - Australia coach Cheika feels for Scotland's banned Ford and Gray
I feel bad for banned Scots - Cheika
- From the section Rugby Union
Australia coach Michael Cheika offers his sympathy to Scotland forwards Ross Ford and Jonny Gray, after they were both given World Cup-ending bans for dangerous tackles during Saturday's 36-33 win over Samoa.
Cheika, whose side take on Scotland in the quarter-finals on Sunday, saw his own flanker Michael Hooper banned for seven days earlier in the tournament following an aggressive clearout of England's Mike Brown.
Scotland number eight Josh Strauss adds that he will be motivated and driven on on Sunday by the loss of his team-mates.
