Embattled Taranaki rugby player Paul Perez has been deported to Samoa.

The 23-year-old was to appear in the New Plymouth District Court charged with assault today but the defended hearing was adjourned.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Lewis Sutton said discussions with immigration reveled Perez was due to be deported.

''We were not going to hold up a deportation because of this charge,'' Mr Sutton said.

Perez was served with a removal order by immigration after he was convicted of twice assaulting his pregnant partner last year.
