For immediate release

Following various media reports and a referral from World Rugby, the Disciplinary Officer for the Autumn Internationals conducted an investigation into comments and conduct attributed to the head coach of the Australian national team, Michael Cheika, during the match between England and Australia at Twickenham last Saturday, 18 November 2017.

Mr Cheika and the ARU cooperated with the investigation, which has now been completed. In light of Mr Cheika's explanations of his conduct, his clear understanding of the need to protect and promote the interests of the sport, and his open apology for any offence caused, the Disciplinary Officer for the Autumn Internationals (in consultation with World Rugby) has decided not to pursue any disciplinary proceedings against Mr Cheika. The Disciplinary Officer has, however, urged Mr Cheika to be aware of the risks during matches when he knows he will be being filmed and potentially broadcast, and where possible to moderate his conduct and language accordingly. Mr Cheika has accepted the position.
