Palu escapes jail after latest driving offence

11:46 am on 2 April 2009

The Wallabies flanker Wycliff Palu has been given a suspended sentence after being caught driving without a valid licence for the second time in two years.

The New South Wales Waratahs star appeared in a Sydney court after police caught him driving with a suspended licence in January.

The 26-year-old was placed on an 18-month good behaviour bond, fined more than $1000, and warned he faced a jail term if he offended again.

The Waratahs manager Chris Webb says Palu understands the seriousness of the offence and deeply regrets his serious error in judgement.
