Australian Players In The Dog House After All-Night Boozing Session

Australian Players In The Dog House After All-Night Boozing Session

The Australian International Rules Team found themselves drowning their sorrows over their defeat to their Irish counter-parts in the first test with back-to-back drinking sessions.

Theage.com.au reported that a number of the players from the Aussie panel drank away their blues on Sunday night in Limerick before finishing their party antics back in the team’s Dromoland Castle hotel in Ennis well into the early hours of this morning.

On more than one occasion hotel staff requested that the music, which was blaring from one of the player’s room, be turned down. Other residents were also subjected to the intoxicated shenanigans and were even woken by the sound of a smashing vase.

This was the second boozing session for the men from down under following their 57-35 defeat in Cavan on Saturday night and it clearly looks like they found it hard to take defeat.

AFL operations manager Mark Evans gave the players a stern talking to following breakfast this morning along with head coach Michael O’Loughlin, who asked his players to refocus for the second test.

A voluntary training session that was scheduled for this afternoon was made compulsory by management.  The whole team will now have to attend and it is expected to be a two-hour flogging session.

No further punishment will be taken and nobody will be made an example of, unlike 2006 when Brendan Fevola was sent home following an altercation with a Galway barman.
