Two due back in court
The two men charged with assault after a fight broke out at an under-11 rugby match have been remanded on bail to appear in court again later this month. The men, aged 35 and 43, both associated with Northern United, still had name suppression when they appeared in Porirua District Court on July 10. They were allegedly involved in a brawl that involved supporters, coaches and the referee of a game between Norths and ParemataPlimmerton Rugby Football Club at Porirua Park on June 30. The 43-year-old has been stood down by the club pending an investigation by the Wellington Rugby Football Union.
