Daw will face a three-day committal hearing in December over rape charges.
North Melbourne footballer Majak Daw will face a three day committal hearing involving up to sixteen witnesses, Fairfax Media reports.
The 23-year-old is facing three counts of rape over an alleged incident in Altona North involving a girl when he was aged 16 in 2007.
Daw appeared on crutches at a Melbourne Magistrates Court hearing on Friday flanked by family and friends.
Magistrate Donnie Bakos granted permission to cross-examine all 16 witnesses during Daw’s committal hearing, set for December.
Daw was the first Sudanese-born player to play in the AFL, and has since played 14 senior matches since joining North Melbourne as a rookie in 2009.
He is barred from making any promotional appearances, however he remains available to play in the AFL and VFL.
