    One of the biggest names in New Zealand sport stands accused of dealing methamphetamine

    One of the biggest names in New Zealand sport stands accused of dealing methamphetamine


    The former national representative was arrested with a number of others in Papatoetoe, south Auckland, yesterday.

    He's charged with possession of the Class A drug for supply - with a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.

    Judge John Macdonald granted the sportsman name suppression at his first appearance in the Manukau District Court this morning.

    Police say they can't rule out the possibility of further arrests or charges.
