Douglas brothers enjoy UK
DURING his visit to Yamba this week, Gold Coast Titan Luke Douglas revealed he visited his brother, Wallaby international Kane Douglas, in Dublin when Australia played Ireland.
In a rare sporting family coincidence, all three Douglas brothers have been playing their respective codes in the British Isles this month.
Luke was a member of Rugby League World Cup quarter-finalist Scotland, Kane part of the Wallabies rugby union squad and Jake, the youngest, has been playing club rugby for Driffield.
After bowing out 40-4 against New Zealand on November 15, Luke visited his brother in Ireland.
It was just days after the Tuesday night in which he and 14 other Wallabies would later be reprimanded by coach Ewen McKenzie for staying out late and consuming "inappropriate levels of alcohol".
"I think it's a bit of a storm in a teacup," Luke said of the incident.
"They had a couple of hard days of training and headed to dinner on Tuesday night. They weren't training the next day. Kane said he wouldn't have had more than five pints, there were no scenes, no police involved."
