  • Beale And Ashley-Cooper Dropped By Australia After Hotel Incident Post Wales Defeat

"I know that's your mentality to think everything is a cover-up, but it's not, I want to be really clear".

It is alleged that both Beale and Ashley-Cooper brought women back to the team hotel after Australia's 9-6 loss to Wales at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff two week's ago.

But Cheika hailed the decision to ditch Beale and Ashley-Cooper as proof of the his team's resolve, even though he played down their offences against the team code by saying they were comparable to "not being on curfew or late for training".

The embarrassing episode comes amid increasing pressure on Cheika, whose role as Australian coach is hanging by a thread.

"[Beale] just made a mistake like any player would, it happens when you play in teams".

"I don't think I need to come out and tell anyone just for the sake of it".

"I don't want it to be seen like a carry on but the justification that Rodda tried to take him on with his shoulder is ludicrous", Cheika said.

He confirmed Ashley-Cooper and Beale were left out of Australia's line-up for having uninvited guests in their hotel rooms earlier in the tour, breaching team policy.

The Wallabies arrived in London on Sunday, and Cheika said the leadership group approached him on Tuesday to penalise Beale and Ashley-Cooper for breaching team protocol.

Beale and Ashley-Cooper have 83 and 117 caps respectively and Hooper said approaching Cheika about the situation was one of the most hard moments of his captaincy.

Asked if she'd spoken to the pair, Castle said she didn't feel the issue was one she needed to be involved with, considering the issue an internal team matter. 'This is a situation where two boys brought some friends and family back into their hotel without thinking of the implications of that, because they were friends and family.

"We have learned a lot from this year being a part of the leadership team".

"You've got to have the bad bits".

"We've got our eye on about 48 players at this point that we'll have a look at around planning over the whole season".

Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper denied there was any disunity in the camp and added: "When we say we're going to put a line in the sand, it's important we stick to that".

It might sound like the desperate ravings of a man backed right up against the wall but Australia, more than any other nation, have shown how to peak for the World Cup and some shrewd punters might already be piling in while the odds are good. They're the small things I think we've got to clamp down on.
