Another high-profile New Zealand player has fallen foul of officialdom over an of-the-field incident. It has been confirmed that the NZRU is investigating an incident involving a Blues scrumhalf Taniela Moa.

In a statement, NZRU general manager professional rugby Neil Sorensen said an investigation had been instigated in conjunction with the Blues following an incident last weekend.

“Taniela Moa was involved in an incident, where a bottle was thrown, at a rugby club in Auckland last Saturday afternoon,” Sorenson said.

“We have started our own misconduct process, together with Blues team management, which will ascertain the facts and determine any penalty deemed appropriate.”

The Collective Employment Agreement (CEA) between the NZRU and its professional players includes a formal process for investigating any incidents of misconduct.

The NZRU and Blues will make further comment at the completion of the misconduct hearing, which the statement said is scheduled to take place “in due course”.

The Blues, in eighth place on the Super 14 standings, have a bye this weekend and next play when they meet the Lions on Friday April 10.

  • Waratahs forward Wycliff Palu has been handed a suspended sentence for driving without a valid licence, for the second time in two years.

    The 26-year-old Wallaby committed the offence in January and appeared before Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court. Palu received an 18-month good behaviour bond and was ordered to pay a fine of more than AU $1,000

    The magistrate indicated that if he drove again without a licence, it would be very hard to avoid a jail term.
