    Melbourne - Rebels duo Amanaki Mafi and Lopeti Timani have each been given an A$15 000 (R150 000) fine by their club following an incident in Dunedin last weekend.

    According to Fox Sports, 28-year-old Mafi appeared in Dunedin District Court on Monday charged with injuring with intent to injure over the incident which took place after the Rebels’ loss to the Highlanders.

    The Japan international entered no plea and was granted bail.

    The terms of his bail mean he cannot associate with Timani and the number eight’s case is scheduled to return to court on Friday, August 3.
