    Kiwis and Melbourne Storm front rower Nelson Asofa-Solomona will miss New Zealand's three upcoming Tests as punishment for his involvement in an ugly Bali brawl

    Kiwis and Melbourne Storm front rower Nelson Asofa-Solomona will miss New Zealand's three upcoming Tests as punishment for his involvement in an ugly Bali brawl

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The sanction will see Asofa-Solomona miss next week's test against Australia and two matches with Great Britain.

    It's a huge blow for the Kiwis, who are already without injured forwards Jesse Bromwich and James Fisher-Harris.

    The NRL and Storm's also handed the prop a suspended $16,000 fine but he is free to play in round one next season.

    Asofa-Solomona admits he could've handled the altercation which involved defending his teammate Suliasi Vunivalu, better.
