Bulls player held in PE for assault

A Blue Bulls junior rugby player was arrested in Port Elizabeth on New Year’s Day on a charge of sexual assault, his attorney confirmed last night.

Phillip Masiza said his client, who cannot be named until he has pleaded, appeared in the New Brighton Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

He confirmed that he would remain in custody until Monday, when he will apply for bail.

The Blue Bulls franchise sent out a statement late last night noting the arrest.
