AUSTRALIAN and Melbourne Rebels teammates Kurtley Beale and Cooper Vuna did not have the chance for any reconciliation following their fight on the team bus in Durban.
They were sent back home in disgrace on separate flights.
The pair was given their marching orders following an investigation into the incident, which happened just hours after the Rebels record-breaking 64-7 loss against the Sharks.
They have also been suspended from playing until the club and the Australian Rugby Union decides their fate.
It's alleged captain Gareth Delve instructed Beale to put his shirt on before arriving at the team hotel and was abused for doing so.
Vuna intervened, telling Beale he should not speak to Delve that way - Beale is then alleged to have punched Vuna.
Coach Damien Hill said it was time to concentrate on the task at hand - playing the Cheetahs.
"The main focus now is to get back on track to put in a good performance this weekend," he said.
"It's going to be a challenge to get things focused but I'm confident we can."
