Rogers investigation put on hold

Scottish police inquiries into allegations of assault against Wallaby back Mat Rogers have been delayed while the investigating officers take days off.

An Australian tourist alleged Rogers assaulted him outside a pub in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh at around 4am on Sunday after the Wallabies had beaten Scotland 31-14 at Murrayfield on Saturday night.

A Scottish police spokesman said officers planned to speak to Rogers but it seemed likely they would wait until the Wallabies returned to Edinburgh next Wednesday for the second Test against the Scots.

No charges have been laid and police say the tourist, who is still in Edinburgh, was not injured.

Australian team management have spoken to Rogers who admitted being involved in an incident but will not take any action until the police investigation progresses.

He could face action from the tour disciplinary committee of team manager and former Australian Federal Police officer, Phil Thomson, team doctor Martin Raftery and players Brendan Cannon and Chris Latham.

Rogers, 28, could then be subject to further action from the Australian Rugby Union.
