2:00 pm on 30 May 2014

Samoa rugby great Muli'agatele Brian Lima faces jail after he was found guilty of five charges, including causing grievous bodily harm, being armed with a dangerous weapon and issuing threats.

Two charges of causing actual bodily harm were dismissed.

Lima was charged after an attack on his former wife, prominent Samoan business woman, Lemalu Sina Retzlaff, last December.

Both the complainant and her male partner were assaulted and injured by Lima outside a night club in Apia.

Lima is on bail awaiting a probation report ahead of sentencing on June the 20th.
