Another day, another Australian rugby group sex scandal. Matthew Johns, a popular ex-player and current TV commentator, was fired from his job after he admitted to participating in an 11-man, 1-woman escapade at hotel room in New Zealand a few years back. Because really, what’s better than enjoying some intimate moments with a lady with 10 other dudes in the room?
Johns is a married man, of course, and the woman in question barely qualified for that moniker, being 19 at the time. All of this is part of an ABC (that’s Australian Broadcasting Corp.) investigation into the questionable sexual behavior of professional rugby players in their country. And based on the allegations flying around, Chris Hansen should be on the next plane to Sydney.
