Aaron Smith’s sex scandal has again erupted down in New Zealand, this time on the eve of the Bledisloe Cup test against the Wallabies in their Rugby Championship opener.
Smith was caught apparently having sex in a disabled toilet at Christchurch Airport last year as the New Zealand side prepared to depart for South Africa.
At the time, Smith tearfully apologised for the ‘one-off’ incident and stood down from the team.
However, revealed messages show the ongoing affair between the All Black and a woman, whose identity has not yet been revealed, played out in a series of text messages before the airport incident.
“This was not some quick hook up,” the woman said. “I had been seeing Aaron on and off for years before he met his current girlfriend.”
The Daily Mail Australia also last night published a series of messages it claimed were sent between Smith and the woman.
The Daily Mail Australia today said that, after publishing the story, they had been barrded by the All Blacks from coming to today’s press conference in Sydney ahead of this weekend’s opening Bledisloe Cup test.
