Wallabies scrum-half Nick Phipps has apologised for urinating on a bar while wearing a cow costume during his stag night at a Sydney venue.
“I’m a goose, if I’m going to do the crime, I’ll pay the time,” the 29-year-old told reporters in Sydney on Tuesday.
“It’s always been in my character to stand up and accept the responsibility, I was a bloody idiot.”
“There are going to be some sanctions handed down and I’ll accept them,” he said.
“My role at the club is something that’s pretty important and to be honest that’s not the way we should carry ourselves.
“There won’t be any fight from me. It’s something I just wanted to do and get on the front foot and get back to playing footy.
“I’ve spoken to Rugby Australia, they’ve voiced their displeasure, they’re not very happy.”
The Waratahs host the Auckland Blues on Saturday and will bid to end Australian teams’ 36-game losing streak to New Zealand opponents.
