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.
