Recent Manly recruit Zane Tetevano has been sacked from the Sea Eagles without playing a game for the club following his admission in court to bashing his girlfriend.
The Sea Eagles released a statement on Tuesday morning confirming the sacking of Tetevano after he entered guilty pleas to eight charges, including two counts of common assault and two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
“Zane Tetevano has had his contract terminated by the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles effective immediately, following his appearance in court last Friday,” the statement said.
“The NRL’s integrity unit has been informed of the decision.
“Violence against women is an extremely serious issue and is one that the club does not condone or tolerate.
“The Sea Eagles will provide the appropriate duty of care for Mr Tetevano and have commenced assisting in his rehabilitation by facilitating an arrangement for the player to connect with the White Ribbon campaign, the NRL Welfare and Education department as well as the Rugby League Players Association.”
Tetevano was sacked earlier this season from the Newcastle Knights disciplinary reasons after playing 29 games with the club.
