Mafi was taken into custody by Dunedin Police on Sunday morning but released on bail under the condition that he does not associate with Timani.

Rugby Australia and the Rebels confirmed that Japan worldwide Mafi was in police custody following an incident in Dunedin after a 43-37 defeat to the Highlanders on Saturday.

Melbourne Rebels loose forward Amanaki Mafi has appeared in Dunedin District Court after he was charged for injuring with intent to injure, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

Stevens sought a remand without plea until August 3, with his next appearance being excused and a non-association with Timani.

The alleged assault occurred on a night out following the Rebels' loss to the Highlanders on Saturday, which denied them a place in the Super Rugby playoffs.

Melbourne Rebels forward Amanaki Mafi was arrested following an altercation with team-mate Lopeti Timani in New Zealand.

The victim's moderate injuries did not need hospital treatment.

No other players were involved in the altercation, the statement added.

Mafi left court yesterday with Rebels team director Tony Thorpe - a former All Blacks manager - and the pair refused comment. "He did not require hospitalisation".

Rugby Australia said it will await the outcome of the current criminal process underway in New Zealand with Mafi before deciding on further possible action.

He was already expected to leave the Rebels at season's end and join the Sunwolves, with national coach Jamie Joseph wanting his players to return home in the lead up to the 2019 World Cup to be played in Japan.
