The Highlanders (Otago) Rugby Union have released a rather odd statement saying that they are disappointed one of their players, Lucky Mulipola, has appeared before a court.


No details were given about what court, what the charges were or if there were any charges.


The chief executive of the Otago Rugby Football Union, Richard Reid, said he was disappointed that a Highlanders and Otago rugby player, Lucky Mulipola, had appeared before the court.


‘The primary employer, the New Zealand Rugby Union, the Highlanders franchise and the Otago Rugby Football Union will now wait the outcome of the legal process before deciding what, if any, action to take,’ Reid said.


‘The procedures to follow are clearly laid down in the players’ Collective Agreement and the player has been informed of these. We will conduct our own inquiries once the legal process has run its course.’


The Highlanders then go on to say that a range of penalties are available to them as the employer under the Collective Agreement for any cases of proven misconduct.

 

Meanwhile Radio New Zealand says that Mulipola was charged with driving while disqualified and assault.

 

They add that he will be back in court on June 10.
