AUSTRALIA'S controversial rugby stars consumed hundreds of euro worth of alcohol in a top Dublin nightclub while on a boozy night out.

Members of the Wallabies squad, six of whom have now been suspended ahead of their clash against Scotland this weekend, partied in Harcourt Street haunt Krystle until the early hours of last Wednesday morning.

A further nine members of the squad have been sanctioned as a result of their partying, which took place ahead of Australia's victory over Ireland at the weekend.

The players took refuge in celebrity hotspot Krystle, where they downed a quantity of spirits and beer, the Herald has learned.

Up to nine of the players let their hair down in Krystle's penthouse suite where they stayed until approximately 3.45am.

The players, who were staying in the upmarket Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, arrived at the club at around 11pm after reportedly visiting city centre venue the Boar's Head.

Meanwhile, Australian star Nick Cummins who scored against Ireland was spotted letting his hair down in nearby hotspot Everleigh Garden.

Australian head coach Ewen McKenzie (left) took the decision to suspend the players for consuming what he described as "inappropriate levels of alcohol".

The players were entertained in the VIP area of Krystle, which is usually closed on a Tuesday night.

"Eight or nine of the lads were enjoying themselves in the penthouse suite and were really nice to fans," a source told the Herald.

"They were drinking bottles of whiskey and vodka as well as a few beers, most of which was on the house.

"They stayed quite late, but they weren't messy and were just enjoying a night off training."
