Cheika not concerned about bugging

Date published: August 21 2016

Australian boss Michael Cheika said that he wasn't concerned about his side being bugged before their next game. 

This comes after there was a listening device found in New Zealand's meeting room before the clash with Australia on Saturday.

“I’m not paranoid about it. Whatever happens, happens,” Cheika told FoxSports.

“Really it’s not ever an issue that I’d be worried about, someone doing it to us because, at the end of the day, it’s one thing knowing, it’s another thing stopping (it).

“They might be big on it. I’m not big on the whole thing. I don’t see why it’s that big of a deal.

“Whatever they want to do is their thing.”

Cheika said that the bugging rumours didn't upset as it obviously made no change in the game. 

“I’m not sure why it came out on game day, when it was done on Monday,” Cheika said.

“But it had no material effect on the game. It didn’t unsettle me because I don’t think they accused us of doing it.

“Until the day they say we did something like that, it’s got nothing to do with us.”
