Exeter prop Craig Mitchell faces further punishment from his club after receiving a suspended prison sentence for punching a man in a Brisbane bar.
Mitchell will be subject to an internal disciplinary hearing at the club after he was given a six-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, fined £1,180 over the attack and ordered him to pay £1,966 in compensation to lawyer Cian Barry.
Exeter issued a statement regarding the matter.
"Exeter Rugby Club deeply regrets that one of its employees has faced court action in relation to their personal behaviour," the statement read.
"The club does not condone law breaking of any kind and will continue to stress with all of its employees the importance of acting as positive ambassadors - even in difficult and unwanted circumstances.
"Craig Mitchell wishes to express his remorse not only to the victim and those involved in the incident, but also to Exeter Rugby Club, the Welsh Rugby Union and his family."
