Beale and Cooper in Brisbane hotel incident
The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that the Australian Rugby Union is investigating an incident that allegedly has involved Wallabies stars Kurtley Beale and Quade Cooper at a Brisbane hotel.
It is reported that one of the two players was involved in a scuffle at the hotel resulting in police attending the scene, but no arrests were made.
Neither Beale or Cooper are involved in Saturday’s Test against Wales.
It is understood the ARU is yet to be informed of the full situation, and that the ARU’s disciplinary committee will investigate the events.
“We’ve been made aware of an incident overnight and are still making our own enquiries,” an ARU spokesman confirmed.
“As a matter of process the issue will be referred to an ARU disciplinary review procedure. We have nothing further to add at this stage.”
Former Wallabies team manager and federal policeman Phil Thomson is the ARU integrity officer and will be in charge of the disciplinary review.
