2:26 pm on 22 December 2008

The All Black flanker Adam Thomson has been charged with assault after an incident in Havelock North early on Sunday morning.

The 26 year-old Otago and Highlanders player was arrested and charged with assaulting a female and will appear in the Hastings District Court tomorrow.

The New Zealand Rugby Union professional rugby manager Neil Sorenson says the NZRU know of the incident but as it is a police matter it is not appropriate to make any further comment at this stage.

Thomson, a 1.96 metre tall loose forward made his All Blacks debut against Ireland in Wellington this year.
