The Samoan rugby league player Tautau Moga has reportedly been arrested over a nightclub brawl in Brisbane at the weekend.

According to Brisbane's Courier Mail, North Queensland centre Moga was partying with his Samoa team-mates ahead of their Four Nations opener against England this weekend, when a disagreement broke out at a nightclub.

Moga is said to be one of eight men charged over offences including public nuisance and assault.

Canterbury utility Reni Maitua was also believed to be present at the nightclub when a scuffle broke out.

Samoan coach Matt Parish has confirmed the incident and says they're co-operating with authorities.
