The former All Black and Connacht fullback star Mils Muliaina is “currently assisting the South Wales Police with enquiries” relating to an alleged sexual assault in Cardiff.

The 34-year-old was taken into custody by Gloucester Police at Kingsholm Stadium immediately after last night’s Challenge Cup quarter final.

The former All Black captain was in the Welsh capital on March 6th for the Pro 12 League rugby fixture between Connacht and Cardiff.

Gloucester Police issued a statement: “A man in his 30s was arrested at Kingsholm Stadium tonight on suspicion of sexual assault in relation to an incident in Cardiff in March. It is a matter being dealt with my South Wales Police.”

Connacht Rugby released a statement early on Saturday confirming that “player Mils Muliaina is currently assisting the South Wales Police with enquiries relating to an alleged incident in Cardiff in March of this year.

“As this is a legal matter, Connacht Rugby will be making no further comment at this time.”
