The Wallabies have had their say on what happened to the Aviva Stadium door
Rumours of the door’s demise have been greatly exaggerated… apparently.
You may have heard the story of the damaged dressing room at the Aviva Stadium that emerged after Ireland’s win over Australia on Saturday.
The Irish Examiner reported that damage to the cost of a “few thousand euro” was inflicted on the dressing room doors and fittings following the Southern Hemisphere side's defeat.
In the fall out, much criticism had been directed at the Wallaby team from sections of the media with many claiming it was a result of anger at the loss they suffered. Although there was no suggestion that he was involved, coach Michael Cheika, for example, has had previous incidents of losing the rag when he smashed the coaches' box window this year following a Waratahs loss to the Brumbies.
In response to this, the Australian’s have responded with this statement of their own side of the story on the Qantas Wallabies Twitter account…

Do we detect a hint of quiet anger in Australia's statement?
