Moala discharged over brawl

Date published: May 6 2015

Blues back George Moala has been discharged without conviction for assault after a bar brawl in Auckland in 2012.

The 24-year-old was sentenced for assaulting Clifford Matoka in a bar in December 2012, but judge Rob Ronayne chose to discharge him without conviction, instead handing him a $NZ2500 fine.

Moala had been found guilty by a jury in January, while his brother had been found not guilty of taking part in the attack.
