The NRL have suspended him for 3 matches (which covers his 3 NZ kiwi tests) and fined him $15k.Apparently he has been cleared by NRL integrity unit and is free to play Round 1 NRL. NZRL still to comment regarding potential international sanctions, but seems unlikely they will suspend him if NRL have cleared him
Free to play round 1 next year though.
8 matches and $125k for pretending to do the deed with a dog.... 3 matches and $15k for a street brawl overseas. Both alcohol related.
NRL Integrity Unit apparently found “that club security had de-escalated situation after Vunivalu was punched. Nelson saw the bloke who punched him outside some time later. He engaged in brawl. That’s why didn’t get off on self defence “
Also “no evidence Nelson was attacked with a bottle outside club.”
