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

With the start of club rugby upon us, how can we maintain the value of the clubs in player pathways and community spirit.
