Hartley defends England 'rock' Cole

England captain Dylan Hartley defends team-mate Dan Cole after Australia head coach Michael Cheika publicly criticised the prop for scrummaging illegally.

Speaking to Matt Dawson's Rugby Show, Hartley describes Cole as "a rock" who takes "pride in his work".

Cole received a yellow card in the game against Argentina, which led Cheika to say he's "been infringing the law since his career started probably".
