Students injured after plane dumps fuel on school playground
Several students at a school in Los Angeles have been injured after a plane dumped a load of fuel over a primary school. Local media reports the aircraft was on its final approach into LAX when it let the fuel go just before 12.30pm local time. © 9News Those injured suffered minor skin irritation. https://twitter.com/ccroucher9/status/1217189407737798656?ref_src=twsrc%5EtfwSeventeen children and six adults at Park Avenue Elementary School in Cudahy, in the city's south-east, reported skin irritation, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.
Former Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika has joined reigning NRL premiers, the Sydney Roosters, and thrown a thinly veiled dig at his former team, saying he's "stoked" to be part of Easts' "winning culture".
According to News Corp, Cheika is reportedly now a member of the Roosters coaching staff, in charge of developing players' "attacking skills".
"He is helping push myself and the assistant coaches to improve and challenging our ideas and helping push us again in 2020," Roosters head coach and close friend of Cheika, Trent Robinson said.
"He is also a really skilful attacking style of coach as well. We are taking anything we can learn from his style of coaching and his attacking mindset.

Doueihi is expected to be the odd man out following Mitchell’s decision to sign with the Rabbitohs on Monday.Mitchell is expected to line up at full-back for the Rabbitohs in 2020 after the unwanted Sydney Roosters star finally ended his search for a new club on Monday.
"Cheiks (Cheika) loves the footy environment," Robinson said.
"He is a rugby union coach but he grew up in the Eastern Suburbs and he just loves footy, whether it's union or league.
"He brings a depth of knowledge with a real simple punch to his delivery. He is very good at delivering messages."
Cheika, who played club rugby for Randwick, is reportedly expected to be at the Roosters' HQ once a week until "at least the end of pre-season".
"Trent asked me to do some very specific stuff with a couple of the coaches and specific areas," Cheika said.
"He has got me on a few projects. I've loved it. I was really honoured that they thought I could contribute. I want to make sure the stuff I'm doing is contributing the way Trent wants me to.
Baby Brumbies ready for Super Rugby opener
The Brumbies have lost 157 Test caps in David Pocock, Christian Lealiifano, Henry Speight, Rory Arnold and Sam Carter during the Super Rugby off-season. The Brumbies lost 157 Test caps with the departures of David Pocock, Christian Lealiifano, Henry Speight, Rory Arnold and Sam Carter - and haven't signed any Wallabies.
"I've really enjoyed being involved with the lads. The coaches are fine men and the players are good lads.
"I give a different set of eyes and ideas. Some stuff they can use other stuff they can put in the bin. I'm doing it for my own development too. If I keep learning I can keep getting better."
Cheika also seemed to be enjoying immersing himself in the club's winning ways.
"You can see why they've been successful because of their culture," Cheika said.
"It's nice for me to be around.
"If I can contribute to what they are hoping to do as a club, I'll be stoked."
