Girls act crazy around the All Blacks
The ex-wife of a former All Blacks player has revealed what life is like as a WAG after Aaron Smith’s sordid bathroom tryst.
Brooke Daji, who was married to Luke McAlister, revealed to New Zealand program Story that temptation is rampant in the All Blacks’ lives.
“Nothing surprises me in the rugby world with some of the things I’ve seen and lived,” she said of Smith’s act.
The 27-year-old has been stood down for one match after the incident with a woman who was not his partner in a toilet cubicle on September 18 that left witnesses in no doubt that sexual activity was taking place.
Daji broke up with McAlister in 2007 after he cheated on her just months after their wedding, the New Zealand Herald reports.
“Girls act crazy when it comes to famous boys”, she said.
“There’s temptation out there for everybody, but for those boys it’s so much more heightened.
“People say you shouldn’t cheat on your partner anyway, but they are not faced with the temptations those boys are faced and I’ve seen it first-hand … it’s a slippery slope.
“You can teach them wrong from right, but at the end of the day people make their own decisions. If they are going to do it, they are going to do it.”
Smith on Thursday issued a tearful apology after details of his toilet tryst at Christchurch Airport were made public.
He told media in Durban before flying home early from the South Africa trip that he had messed up.
“I’ve made a huge mistake, a huge error in judgment,” the Highlanders No.9 said.
“I’d firstly like to say a huge sorry to my partner Teagan, her family, my family. I’m also sorry to my teammates, NZRU and the New Zealand fans.
“My behaviour was unacceptable and if you could respect me and my partner in this situation. I’m just trying to get home to deal with this.”
