London, June 20 (ANI): Four England rugby stars were recently caught partying on a cruise with a bunch of scantily-clad strippers as they celebrated a win on a day off Down Under.
Delon Armitage, 26, Paul Doran-Jones, 25, James Haskell, 25, and Ugo Monye, 27, were seen aboard a luxury chartered boat in Sydney Harbour as girls in racy thongs, lingerie and bikinis entertained them.
According to the players, the women were promotional models hired from Sirens Agency - which supplies "strippers, lingerie and topless waitresses".
They said a businessman friend, who booked the cruise, invited the girls.
"We have spoken to the players involved and are entirely comfortable that this was an innocent afternoon spent on a friend's boat in Sydney Harbour," The Mirror quoted a Rugby Football Union (RFU) spokesman, as saying.
He added: "We are confident their behaviour was not in any way inappropriate."
The team were celebrating a 15-9 win over the Australian Barbarians - with Armitage, Haskell and Doran-Jones all starring. (ANI)
