'I'm a goose' - Australian scrumhalf Nick Phibbs apologises for urinating ON bar in Sydney while

dressed as a cow.

I guess he'll have to turn the udder cheek....



Australian scrumhalf Nick Phibbs has apologised, and is prepared to accept any punishment, for urinating on a bar at the Woollahra Hotel in Sydney.

The Waratahs number 9 was escorted from the bar at 9.45pm on April 21 after committing the disgusting act. He was celebrating with friends on his stag night at the time. A witness has said he was dressed as a cow.

"I'm a goose," Phipps said today. "If I'm going to do the crime, I'll definitely pay the time. It's always been my character – I'll stand up and accept the responsibility. I was a bloody idiot. I want everyone to know how sorry I am.

"It's certainly not something I was proud of, because it's not who I am or what we represent as a team.

"I want to apologise to my team-mates, our organisation and our commercial partners, staff, patrons of the Woollahra Hotel, our fans and supporters for the embarrassment this may have caused.`

He admitted to having very little recollection of the incident.

"I certainly remember just after the incident and beforehand," Phipps said. "It was something that happened for a few seconds and some of the boys grabbed me."

The 61-test Wallaby is the club captain of the Waratahs and there is a chance Phipps will have that role stripped.
