Arrest warrant: Digby Ioane

The Wallabies' selection woes have been thrown into further disarray after a warrant for the arrest of Reds wing Digby Ioane was issued on Monday.

Ioane, 27, was meant to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court but did not appear. The wing is facing a charge of unlawful assault after he was allegedly involved in a scuffle on March 9, the day after he played in the Reds' win over the Rebels.

The 35-cap Wallaby was not charged at the time by Melbourne police but was later charged on summons on May 17, when on tour with the Reds.

Ioane was part of the Australia side that lost 23-21 against the British and Irish Lions in Brisbane.
