Zane Musgrove to appear in court on assault charge

South Sydney forward Zane Musgrove will appear in court on Wednesday facing charges of domestic violence against his former partner.

The 22-year-old has pleaded not guilty to two counts of common assault - one related to domestic violence - and another offence of causing damage to property.

The Rabbitohs, who will square off against St George Illawarra in a sudden-death semi-final at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night, informed the NRL Integrity Unit when the incident occurred earlier in the year.

Musgrove, who has played 27 games for South Sydney since his NRL debut in 2016, has not represented South Sydney this season.

It is understood he was stood down before later resuming training with the club when he pleaded not guilty to charges. He has played two games in the Intrust Super Premiership this year.

The 110 kilogram prop, who made his international debut for Samoa at last year's World Cup, extended his deal with the Rabbitohs in 2016 until the end of 2020.



Musgrove, who was born in Auckland, will appear at Sydney Downing Centre on Wednesday.

Earlier on Friday, the Rabbitohs released a statement which says they will investigate allegations of player misbehaviour from earlier in the year.

The incident, which allegedly took place in May, was reported by News Ltd publications on Friday morning. The Rabbitohs said a thorough investigation would be undertaken in conjunction and in close co-operation with the NRLs Integrity Unit.

South Sydney forward Zane Musgrove will appeal the severity of the fine handed down to him on Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to a charge of intentionally or recklessly destroying/damaging property.

Musgrove appeared at the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney where charges of common assault and common assault domestic violence were withdrawn by the prosecution.

A conviction was recorded, Musgrove was fined $1,100 and was ordered to pay $500 compensation for the damage to a gate following an incident in Zetland earlier this year.

The Rabbitohs released a statement to say "the court's judgment will now be reviewed very closely by the club to determine whether further sanctions are required".

Musgrove's appeal is set to be heard in November.

The Rabbitohs said they have kept the NRL Integrity Unit informed throughout the process and will be making no further comment on the matter.

Meanwhile, Fairfax Media has reported Manly rookie Manase Fainu has escaped conviction after pleading guilty to filming, without consent, a sex act after the matter was heard in Fairfield Local Court on Tuesday.
