NEW HIGHLANDERS recruit James Haskell is among three England players disciplined following their misconduct during the Rugby World Cup.
Last week, Mike Tindall was fined £25,000 ($NZ51,000) and removed from England’s elite player squad following his highly-publicised night out in Queenstown.
Haskell and England teammate were also given warnings and suspended £5000 fines after making lewd comments towards a female Dunedin hotel worker.
Tindall – who has said he would appeal the fine – is married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips.
He was caught on CCTV getting cosy with a mysterious blonde woman at the Altitude Bar in Queenstown on September 11.
He later admitted misleading officials about the night out.
Haskell and Ashton – along with another player, Dylan Harley, who was cleared of any wrong doing – had harassed Annabel Newton at the Southern Cross Hotel in Dunedin two days earlier.« Back to Archives
