Lions star in sexual assault?

2011-05-30 09:34

Dunedin - Dunedin police are believed to be investigating an alleged sexual assault in the city involving a Lions Super Rugby player.

According to the Stuff.co.nz website, the alleged incident took place in the hours after the touring Lions team beat the Highlanders 26-22 in their Super Rugby match at Carisbrook on Saturday.

Police are not talking about the allegation, apart from issuing a brief statement saying that there had been an "incident" early on Sunday morning involving an 18-year-old female.

It is understood an 18-year-old University of Otago student has complained that she was sexually assaulted.

Friends of the girl at one of the University's halls of residence say they have been warned not to talk to reporters about the incident.

Otago University communications manager Megan McPherson said the incident was a "police matter".

It is understood police requested video footage from a bar in central Dunedin.

When contacted, Lions coach John Mitchell said he had no information. "This is the first we've heard of it."

    I know this is completely offside so excuse the dark humour, but lets be honest, there is no way a Lions player could score any other way.

      GinSA1 - 2011-05-30 11:05

      Sick GT, but lol re the humorous side.....

      Gazza69 - 2011-05-30 11:07

    I thought Earl Rose was travelling with the Stormers now?

      Gazza69 - 2011-05-30 11:28

      Hahaha classic @Johann! 10 outta 10......

      Monsterz - 2011-05-30 13:56

      haha this is funny

      Raymond - 2011-05-30 20:29

      Johann,I am a STORMER,but my mind still cannot conceive that what has happening is real. When I heard this news,I really thought it was an April Fools Joke and it was'nt serious.They should have taken his brother with as well.With all due respects to the Lions,but if they did'nt want him well then..........

  • terrancebalfour - 2011-05-30 11:29

    Oh Poor Lions..See what happens when they win..

  • PJ - 2011-05-30 11:32

    Toer ZAPMAN en Lloyd dan saam met die Lions?

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-30 11:40

      @PJ - nee wat jong, as dit hulle twee was wat betrokke is, sou die headline gelees het: "Kiwi chick laughs herself into a coma when 2 obese crunchies reveal their 'pimples".

      Staalbal - 2011-05-30 11:43

      Nee PJ, dan sou dit 'n laerskool seuntjie gewees het

      ZAPMAN - 2011-05-30 11:51

      Wow Saffa what a chirp,,,you ,,,,im speechless

      bokfan1 - 2011-05-30 12:28

      @ saffa. I agree with zapman. I would normally read your rugby comments but from this comment there is no more respect. You certainly have lowered your game. Shame on you! can't buy class I suppose??

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-30 12:50

      @Karoobloed - I care neither way mate. I treat decent people with respect. But Zapman, Lloyd, Plesierpsier, Rene, Krugga etc are not deserving of anyones respect. I treat them with the same vulgarity that they treat me. Nothing more, nothing less. One treats sh*te the way it asks to be treated. If you read anything that they have said, written, concocted in the past, you will know. No skin off my back, either way.

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-30 13:11

      Sorry, not Karoobloed. Meant for @Bokfan1.

      ZAPMAN - 2011-05-30 13:13

      Saffa lay off the Tik,

      bokfan1 - 2011-05-30 13:51

      My misconception and totally incorrect asumption about a blogger once again. You are what you are as I said you can't buy class can you??

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-30 14:06

      @Bokfan1 - perhaps you should take your 'class' statement to those who most need it, Zapman, Krugga, Plesierspier etc. Sad that only see one side, whilst totally ignoring the BLUE side, but then again I care less either way. You are correct, class can't be bought...fortunately I was born with it. As you were.

      PJ - 2011-05-31 02:26

      ZAPMAN en Lloyd gee verniet BJ's om iets in hul magies te kry.

      CliffBradley - 2011-05-31 07:23

      SAFFA-CAT : You know what the problem is , these people are so obsessed with the Stormers / WP that they don't see the rude and vulgar remarks we get from them , only our replies .

  • WernerE - 2011-05-30 11:36

    "early on Sunday morning involving an 18-year-old female" "bar in central Dunedin". Don't tell me she was completely innocent.

      Gazza69 - 2011-05-30 11:52

      Two to tango......maybe she didn't accept Rands.......!

      Gazza69 - 2011-05-30 11:58

      Maybe she didn't accept Rands..........

      Bren Vander - 2011-05-30 17:46

      You've heard it here - an 18-year old female who likes partying, automatically cannot be completely innocent........ WTF?!?!?!?! - Of COURSE she could still be completely innocent, just like the Lions player be completely innocent too, that's not my point - It honestly sounds like you're the type of guy who thinks a girl wearing a short skirt is implying "yes" whether she says it or not. The type of guy who should be shot... Hope you're not, and reconsider your idiotic statement.

      Cire - 2011-05-30 19:13

      So anybody who is out late is suspect? You sound like my granny!

      Gazza69 - 2011-05-31 08:46

      Dude Maybe she was a waitress.......!!

  • Lloyd - 2011-05-30 11:42

    This must be a mistake. The Lions don't have any stars.

      Lloyd - 2011-05-30 14:53

      'Their' own backyard.

      Juan - 2011-05-30 15:08

  • Carl Muller - 2011-05-30 11:46

    It is sick to report this and create suspicion against every member of the lion team. Bulls forever.

  • MWOS - 2011-05-30 12:10

    Two questions: 1. Not having a clue who the player is (according to the original report just stating "Lions Player", you guys go on to label this as a "LIONS STAR". When are you guys going to stop with sensational headings such as this one. Just give us the stories as they come out and don't add your own perceptions to it, makes of this very good website a bit of a tabloid! Which is sad! 2. Do you think its fair to even publish such a report seeing as it's still just gossip?

  • GBES - 2011-05-30 12:13

    OK, They beat the HIGHLANDERS, so now they must pay the price.

      Cire - 2011-05-30 19:15

      Everybody is against us! They all hate us! Poor us! it's all just so UNFAIR! En nou die snot en trane - all together now!

    Irresponsible reporting.

      Irresponsible sexual predation

  • Wade Mackintosh - 2011-05-30 12:28

    lets first see if she asked for taxi money, then we know she had " a good time". (tongue firmly in cheek)

      Uwe Klopfer - 2011-05-30 13:03

      i hope the player took a shower afterwards, it works you know...it must...shouldn't it ?

  • Uwe Klopfer - 2011-05-30 13:05

    except for the paragraph stating the NZ website this so called piece of news is a carbon copy the the original report on that same website. Pathetic News24

  • Kok - 2011-05-30 13:08

    What a relieve!!!! it's not a Bulls player in trouble this time around.

      Lloyd - 2011-05-30 13:17

      It's actually a refreshing change, even if I have to say so myself.

      Gazza69 - 2011-05-30 14:06

      haha somebody got head, usually its Bakkies giving it!!

      Cire - 2011-05-30 19:16

    Check bietjie Jaco Fourie se fototjie uit as jy jou totaal besimpeld wil lag. Check daai kyk, daar gaan absoluut bokkerol tussen die ore aan. Absoluut absoluut plankdom!

      croix - 2011-05-30 23:32

      Ou Jake-the-snake se meisie lyk so 'n bietjie "af" - moet hy haar nie weer 'n slag opblaas nie?

  • Jaco - 2011-05-31 03:33

    I have to say the Bulls recent form is pretty frightning! There's not a team that will stop them now, even as a loyal Stormer supporter I can't bet against the Bulls. They have serious BMT!

      Julius Dilem - 2011-05-31 07:04

      Dude - the same comment on several articles.... How about you shut up and go to Derek Zoolanders School for Kids who cant read good. Because you are super retarded...

  • Die Stem - 2011-05-31 07:05

    If you cannot score on the field then you have no other alternative than to score off field

  • Staal - 2011-05-31 07:53

    Lions STAR??????? There is no such thing..... maybe disaSTAR.....

  • watalife - 2011-05-31 20:38

    Well, with Rossouw starting, the option of vd Heever at wing/fullback, the pack totally dominating again even us Stormers have to admit this is a different Bulls team from 2 months ago. I can't see anyone really stopping the Bulls from taking their 4th cup in 5 years.

  • mileslogan - 2011-06-01 08:19

    I am sure she was ashamed coz she found too late it was a Lions player...sy het haar mors dood geskaam toe sy uitvind. Haar vriende se gegiggel het gemaak sy moet die polisie ontbied...want haar daddy moet nou grond koop in Oudtshoorn sodat hulle die volstruise kan join met daai kop in die grond aksie!
