From Danny Cipriani to Danny Care – 10 rugby stars who got in drunken trouble & what happened next
4. James O’Connor
He had his Australian central contract ripped up after an incident at Perth airport, where it is alleged the intoxicated playmaker was refused entry onto a flight.
It now looks like they’ve forgiven him with the playmaker set to make his Wallabies return at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
5. Danny Care
England scrum-half Care was arrested in Leeds last year to complete a hat-trick of alcohol-related incidents in the space of three months.
Care, who was serving a drink-driving ban at the time, was caught urinating against the wall of a building after a night out just weeks after being taken into custody for drunk and disorderly behaviour on a night out in Surrey.null
6. Mike Phillips
Lions scrum-half Phillips was sacked by his former club Bayonne for allegedly turning up drunk to a video analysis session. This incident came two years after he was involved in a late-night altercation in Cardiff city centre.
7. Zac Guildford
The All Black wing, who has admitted to being an alcoholic, stunned onlookers in a Rarotonga bar when he arrived wet, bleeding, drunk and, of course, naked, before proceeding to assault two holidaymakers.
Months later he was in trouble again after getting so drunk at a house party he punched the wrong person.
