"Some might consider it a bit too harsh, the leaders showed a lot of courage coming to me to point it out because they want to set a standard here".
Australia coach Michael Cheika dropped star backs Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper from Saturday's Twickenham Test with England after they broke team rules by bringing three women including Ashley-Cooper's sister-in-law back to their hotel following the defeat in Wales two weeks ago.
"They're very contrite that they let the team down, we've seen by their involvement during the week and today that they want nothing more than the team to win, ' Cheika said".
The embarrassing episode comes amid increasing pressure on Cheika, whose role as Australian coach is hanging by a thread.
"I haven't spoken to (Beale or Ashley-Cooper), I've spoken to Hoops and to Michael (Cheika), but as far as I'm concerned it's not something I need to get involved with", she said.
Embattled Wallabies coach Michael Cheika maintains he's still the man to take Australia to the World Cup despite his side suffering a ninth defeat in 13 Test matches.
The Wallabies arrived in London on Sunday, and Cheika said the leadership group approached him on Tuesday to penalise Beale and Ashley-Cooper for breaching team protocol. "Sometimes the bitter taste and the scars that are left and the things that go against you make you stronger".
Cheika said Pocock wouldn't miss a beat in his preparation.
"There's different times where we bring our families into the hotel and different things like that but this was different, and even though there's nothing sinister I still think the rules are rules, the team law's the team law and I think that's where we've got to go".
Castle said she wasn't anxious about any wider cultural problems within the team, echoing Cheika and Hooper's views that this breach was a particularly minor one, despite the pair being two of the more experienced players in the team.
"It's extremely hard. There's no way around it".
The RA board is reportedly meeting on December 10 for another performance review, with the 2019 World Cup in Japan looming.
Both players have faced off-field punishments in the past but Castle said that played no factor in the discussions around this latest incident. Most of what gets under your skin is the stuff that is not true'.
"There's not a bottomless pit where they can take every player in Australia and are we any worse off than say people like Argentina?"
