All Blacks loosie Sione Lauaki appears in court
Former All Black Sione Lauaki has been accused of damaging a closed-circuit television camera.
The 32-year-old appeared today in the Auckland District Court, where he did not enter a plea to a charge of intentionally damaging the camera.
He is expected to enter a plea when he reappears in court this month.
Lauaki, a former Chiefs loose forward, ended his rugby career at French club Bayonne in 2012 after a routine medical assessment detected problems with his heart and kidneys.
He played 17 tests for the All Blacks, making his debut against Fiji in 2005.
