The Australian rugby league teams caused a bit of a stir on board an Auckland-Waiheke Island ferry over the weekend. 

The women's and men's teams were heading back from a day at Waiheke Island and forced the bar on the Fullers ferry to close - before they had even left the port.

A passenger on board the ferry said that "they pretty much bought two-thirds of the fridge so everyone else in line couldn't get anything.

"The captain had to shut the bar and there was no more food left... there were a few disgruntled people coming back from a lovely day on this island."

The team responded, saying that there wasn't any "heavy alcohol consumption" during the day and cited the ferry's small fridge and busy day as a reason for the forced closure.

The women's team, known as the Jillaroos, head away today following their 26-24 win over the Kiwi Ferns on Saturday before the Kangaroos played afterwards. The men lost 26-24 to the Kiwis.
