Wallaby Rogers admits to pub fracas

Wallaby back Mat Rogers has admitted he was involved in an incident outside an Edinburgh pub which is being investigated by Scottish police.

An Australian tourist told police that Rogers had pushed him over outside the pub in the early hours of Sunday morning after the Wallabies' 31-14 win on Saturday night in the first rugby Test at Murrayfield.

Team officials were contacted by police after they had travelled from Edinburgh to Paris for this week's game against France.

"The details are very sketchy at the moment. We have spoken to him and he says he was involved in an incident, as to the extent we are waiting for final details from the police," team manager Phil Thomson said.

Thomson would not elaborate on Rogers' possible involvement but no charges have been laid and police say the tourist was not injured.

Police have not yet spoken to Rogers.

Thomson said any disciplinary action by team management would depend on the outcome of the police investigation.

"At the moment we've done everything we have to in relation to the investigation with what we're doing with Mat," Thomson said.

"What we do now is wait for the finalisation of the police investigation and then we'll deal with anything that comes from that."

Rogers could face action from the tour disciplinary committee of Thomson, hooker Brendan Cannon, fullback Chris Latham and doctor Martin Raftery.
