"They're all out of form, not just Kurtley Beale" - Jeremy Paul

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

"He survives because I think he has the run of the mill at the Australian rugby union", Burke told the Big Sports Breakfast.

Australia are in turmoil after it emerged that Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper were not considered for selection against England on Saturday as punishment for bringing women into their hotel room in Cardiff.

Australia coach Michael Cheika refused to criticise Sinckler for the sledge, accepting that it was an attempt to rile the tourists.

"While disappointed, I must say they're disappointed that they've put the team in this situation, but they accept the rules are in place to be lived by".

"The leadership group came to me earlier in the week and asked me to deal with it in a way I thought was appropriate and I thought this was the appropriate way".

With the Wallabies losing 11 out of their past 15 matches under Michael Cheika, one would assume that the Australian coach is sitting on his last lifeline.

"We have learned a lot from this year being a part of the leadership team. Sometimes the bitter taste and the scars that are left and the things that go against you make you stronger".

The REAL Reason Kurtley Beale Was Dropped By Wallabies Emerges

Beale and Ashley-Cooper have 83 and 117 caps respectively and Hooper said approaching Cheika about the situation was one of the most hard moments of his captaincy.

"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". '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.

'We are down to seventh in the world after starting at No 3.

"They can't sit back and let this decline continue without someone deciding to take the bull by the horns, say this is unacceptable and we need to do something to turn it around", Cannon said.

Cannon, who played 42 Tests, said he knew how the current crop were feeling, comparing it to the 2005 spring tour.

Having been impressed by the likes of Will Skelton, who has been transformed since joining Saracens from the Waratahs a year ago, Dwyer also believes the improved condition and form of some players overseas is an "indictment" on the Australian Super Rugby scene.

"We have got to be that way, take it in to next season we've got a couple of days now to digest and look forward to next year to build, and we are going to have to take this tough lesson and move on".
