Sydney - The Australia Rugby Union says it will take no action against Wallabies captain Michael Hooper for his involvement in an overnight incident to which police were called.

Hooper was out in the resort town of Byron Bay early on Tuesday when a security guard saw Hooper's friend jump on a parked car and called police, who said the pair later pushed over a sign post.

Hooper's friend is expected to be charged for damaging the car.

The Australian Rugby Union said "police confirm Michael Hooper was not involved in any serious misdemeanor ... we don't expect any further action to be taken."

Hooper was appointed captain earlier this year and is expected to lead the Wallabies at next year's Rugby World Cup.
