The Sydney Morning Herald has the somewhat alarming news that Brumbies stars Matt Giteau and Adam Ashley Cooper have been fined by the Australian Federal Police for not declaring the cash rolls of $20,000 they were trying to bring into the country after the Barbarians game last year:
Matt Giteau, Adam Ashley-Cooper and Drew Mitchell were investigated by the AFP after not declaring more than $60,000 in cash to Customs when they returned to Sydney following the Wallabies’ end-of-season tour last December. The money was earned when the trio played for the Barbarians at the end of the northern hemisphere tour. The players said they had forgotten to declare the money, and were fined $220 each by the AFP.
Apparently the ARU considers the matter closed.
