IRFU may bill Wallabies over dressing room damage

The IRFU is considering whether or not to bill the Australian Rugby Union for damage done to one of the dressing rooms at the Aviva Stadium in the wake of last Saturday’s test match.

Damage estimated at “a few thousand euro” was inflicted on doors and fittings in the dressing room used by the Wallabies in their 26-23 defeat to Ireland.

The union declined to comment publicly on the issue last night, but is considering formally billing the Australian union for the damage.

An Australian team spokesman confirmed last night: “There was an accident after the match involving one of our support staff. We made the IRFU aware of this on the evening of the game and have offered our assistance in any way if required.”
