Rugby: Court date set for Rene Ranger

Blues wing and former All Black Rene Ranger will go on trial in August on a charge of injuring with intent, three years after the alleged assault.

Ranger, 25, is charged over an assault on a man outside a pub in Mangawhai in August 2009. Ranger was arrested several weeks later.

The case was listed as a back-up trial in Whangarei District Court today and was confirmed as a firm fixture for August.
