Gloucester - England international Danny Cipriani has been fined £2 000 (R37 000) by his club for a nightclub assault.
His club Gloucester said the flyhalf must also undertake 10 hours of community service, work with its community staff to coach local children and help the homeless in the southwest city.
Cipriani, who has played 16 times for England, pleaded guilty in court to assault and resisting arrest following an incident at a nightclub on the island of Jersey in the English Channel during Gloucester's pre-season tour.
He was fined £1 500 for resisting arrest and £500 for assault. He was also ordered to pay £250 in compensation to a female police officer who bruised her neck.
However, Gloucester, which has just signed Cipriani for the upcoming season, said on Monday that "we do not believe he is guilty of bringing the game into disrepute and he will continue to get our full support."
Gloucester added they viewed the transgression as a "minor incident".
