    Mafi faces charges of assault for attacking Rebels team-mate Lopeti Timani after the Melbourne side’s 43-37 defeat to the Highlanders in Dunedin.

    Timani is alleged to have made a derogatory comment about a member of Mafi’s family.

    Both players were fined A$15 000 each.

    Mafi is currently out on bail in Japan and was unable to attend Thursday’s hearing in Dunedin District Court.
