Wallabies halfback Nick Phipps turfed for urinating on bar

Wallabies halfback Nick Phipps has apologised and says he will accept an expected sanction for urinating on a bar during his buck's night.

"I'm a goose, if I'm going to do the crime, I'll pay the time," said Phipps when he fronted reporters on Tuesday, after the story broke.

"It's always been in my character to stand up and accept the responsibility, I was a bloody idiot."

Dressed in a cow suit, Phipps was kicked out of Sydney's Woollahra Hotel on Saturday, April 21 for an incident he said he had little memory of.

The incident occurred a day after he played in the NSW Waratahs' 29-0 Super Rugby home loss to the Lions and reportedly followed a harbour cruise to celebrate his impending wedding.

Phipps had already apologised to the publican in the days after the incident and he was expecting to be sanctioned by his employers later on Tuesday.

"There are going to be some sanctions handed down and I'll accept them," he said.

"My role at the club is something that's pretty important and to be honest that's not the way we should carry ourselves.

"There won't be any fight from me. It's something I just wanted to do and get on the front foot and get back to playing footy."

"I've spoken to Rugby Australia, they've voiced their displeasure, they're not very happy."

The Waratahs host the Blues at Brookvale Oval on Saturday bidding to break a 36-game winning streak by New Zealand teams against Australian opposition.

Phipps married his fiance Ebony Grace on Saturday with Wallabies and Waratahs teammates Michael Hooper and Bernard Foley standing alongside as groomsmen.
