The Melbourne Rebels may not have showed much fight on the pitch on Saturday, where they were humiliated 64-7 by the Sharks, but rather opted to save their aggression for the team bus afterwards, as tends to be the way when Australian Super Rugby sides tour the republic.

This time, fortunately, it wasn’t any innocent bystanders who were the victims of Aussie rage as the Rebels opted to keep it “in the team”. Reports indicate that both Cooper Vuna and Kurtley Beale have been sent home from the tour, after engaging in a punch-up.

Reading between the lines, the injured Beale, who has already been up on a charge of common assault once in the past calendar year, is alleged to have punched Vuna. Perhaps he was just sharing his frustration at having to sit and watch the crap-in-the-guise-of-rugby dished up by Vuna and the rest of the Rebels crew at Kings Park.

It’s not really clear why Beale was on tour in the first place, given that he’s currently nursing a hand injury. Fortunately, when it comes to throwing punches, the versatile Wallaby playmaker appears to be ambidextrous.


  • Sonny Bill, what have you done?!? First Cooper, now Beale, does every bloody Wallaby suddenly think he’s a boxer now?
