Force stand down two players over boozy flight, Wallaby to learn fate
The Force’s lack of options at tighthead means Holmes hasn’t been stood down for the match, but he will cop a penalty in the coming week.
It’s understood the trio drank wine with their meal on the flight back from Melbourne last Sunday following the team’s 28-3 win over the Rebels.
Their decision to drink alcohol when a short turnaround between games awaited them was deemed inappropriate by the team’s leadership group.
The trio, who were all named on the bench against the Rebels last week, addressed the player group on Monday to apologise.
