Souths player on domestic violence charges

South Sydney reserve grade forward Zane Musgrove will face court following an alleged domestic violence incident in July.

South Sydney have revealed forward Zane Musgrove has been charged with domestic violence offences and will face a Sydney court next week.

Hours after the Rabbitohs became embroiled in a video tape scandal reportedly involving two star players, the club released a statement confirming the Samoa international is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.


The 22-year-old pleaded not guilty to charges of common assault, domestic-related common assault and another of damaging or destroying property when he faced court on July 11.

Musgrave was stood down by the club after the alleged incident on July 8 and reinstated following his not guilty plea - a decision they say was endorsed by the NRL Integrity Unit.

"The South Sydney Football Club takes allegations of domestic violence very seriously and will take decisive action should the charges be proven," the Rabbitohs said in a statement on Friday night.

"The Rabbitohs will be making no further comment on this issue until after the court proceedings."

New Zealand-born Musgrove, who's contracted until the end of 2020, played 21 games for the Rabbitohs last year but hasn't featured in first grade this season.
