Marseille - A
French appeals court acquitted former Australia prop
Salesi Ma'afu of a conviction for assault, his lawyer said on Monday.
The former Wallaby, now 34, was convicted of assault over a parking
space dispute in November 2015, after which he was released by French
Top 14 giants Toulon.
Ma'afu never spent time in prison as his four-month sentence was suspended.
From Toulon, the 20-time capped Wallaby went to Cardiff Blues and
then Gloucester before joining French second-division outfit Narbonne
Ma'afu was originally convicted of having driven his car into
someone, who was subsequently signed off work for eight days, during an
argument over the parking space, and of striking another person who
tried to intervene.
The former Brumbies, Western Force and Northampton front row forward denied the accusations.
