Australia without Pocock, Beale and Ashley-Cooper for Twickenham clash

TIM IRELAND  AP 
 
   Michael Cheika has too much power according to Wallabies great Matthew Burke

"I think disarray is a little bit harsh", replied Cheika.

Australia coach Michael Cheika says Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper were guilty of "a small error of judgement" after they reportedly invited three women to their hotel after defeat by Wales a fortnight ago.

Cannon says Cheika can continue as coach but his power needs to be reined in.

"If you haven't been good enough, or the bounce of the ball or something like that can occur, you've got to have faith inside of your own team, and then outside of the team, because at the end of the day that's the team we support".

"I nearly feel like I've got a repeat of this very day in 2014", Cheika said after Saturday's loss.

Australia have strict rules in place that no guests are allowed back to players' rooms and the senior leadership group have deemed this to be unacceptable behaviour, according to reports.

After their latest loss, a 37-18 defeat to England at Twickenham, Burke, who won the 1999 World Cup with the Wallabies, said Cheika should be under more pressure from Rugby Australia than he is.

In a news conference on Friday, a reporter asked Cheika and Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper if there was a chance fans would see a "team in disarray" at Twickenham.

Beale And Ashley-Cooper Dropped By Australia After Hotel Incident Post Wales Defeat

"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".

"We have learned a lot from this year being a part of the leadership team". 'Once it was pointed out to them that the rule was there for a reason, they recognised that they had erred and they accepted the team and Michael's position.

"It's been a tough one this year", said Hooper.

"We have agreed basic principles for next year with a national camp for players so next year we will be as fit as possible".

It seems unlikely there will be any overhaul of the Wallabies environment but Castle said the review would be pivotal heading into a World Cup year.

"We have, though, got to give and take in those situations".

"Guys who we think are going to be in the World Cup squad and other guys who are competition for other players at different levels".

Cannon, who played 42 Tests, said he knew how the current crop were feeling, comparing it to the 2005 spring tour. Most of what gets under your skin is the stuff that is not true'.
