Who's the 3rd one JB?
The injured Pocock. It would have just been him missing. We might have seen a centre pairing of Kerevi and AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) as many had hoped or at least a pretty well established 12.
The squad lacks balance, particularly in the back row.

Unfortunately I think there is a bit more to it than just that. Some friends saw Beale in the hotel lobby after the game but the timing was probably before the above. Their impression was that Beale was very intoxicated and very poorly behaved. One group of young ladies in the hotel lobby were clearly upset at his obnoxious behavior and told him so, only for Beale to tell them they could “Fuck off”.


If that's fair dinkum, then jog on Kurtley, you've had your chances. These people represent us and I don't want to be reading about their exploits on anything but the field.

I remember, years ago, when I was a trainee in the Navy, the rules were that we had to have the door open when we had female company in our rooms. Maybe they could have tried that? :)
In my experience, those hotel doors just won't stay open. How many times when you think you are going to the bathroom and find yourself in the hallway with the door locked behind you. Can be a bit embarrassing depending on what pjs are worn if any.

I am skeptical

More Cheika switcheroo nonesense underplay.... Someone please inform him this is a coaching job not a foxhole...

Media reports the Cheika have said that the leadership team insisted that something had to be done, only mention AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) and Beale.
Pity but protocols are to be followed... especially in an under performing team... does let Cheika off the hook again, ...

and why Banks is not even on the bench but take the guy around the world for +30 days is a joke...

I'll happily take that 30 day trip. What an experience it would be.

But what sort of protocols are in place?

It seems that the “leadership group” knew straight away but the coach and presumably the rest of team management aren’t told for a week?

Then it’s hushed up for another 5 days?

Seriously.

This is a thousand times worse than it would have been if they had called a press conference the next day and laid it all out

Maybe they were hesitant to release the information because they knew there would be a bunch of rabid fans and media waiting to turn nothing into something.

If they don’t get into trouble, turn up on time and are in a fit state to play and train who fuckin cares.

Jesus it’s 2018, this isn’t the stone ages. What’s the problem?? oh shit there’s a bed in the room shock horror can’t have females in there because you have to bang them if you do

Not to go further OT - I don't get what year it is it's not appropriate.

I don't socialise with either on my sister in law's without my wife/brother too often. Especially not at night, in a hotel room with other women....

At least we had one win today.
