Rene Ranger charges delayed
Auckland - Former All Black and current Blues Super Rugby star Rene Ranger will face assault charges in Whangarei District Court in August, three years after the alleged incident happened.
According to the Stuff.co.nz website
, Ranger, 25, is charged with two counts of injuring with intent after an incident which left a man unconscious outside the Mangawhai Tavern in August, 2009.
The case was listed as a reserve, or back-up, trial in Whangarei District Court on Monday and will now take place in August.
Ranger had sought name suppression over the case, but the High Court ordered in 2010 that name suppression be lifted.
