A budding rugby league star has been charged over the alleged stabbing of three people after a rugby league match in western Sydney.
Former Fiji Bati rep Ratu Nanovo was arrested yesterday afternoon having spent the past two days under police guard at a Hospital.
The 19-year-old Nanovo was taken to Granville police station and charged with three counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
He was refused bail at Parramatta Local Court.
The charge carries a maximum jail term of 25 years in prison.
Police allege the former Australian Schoolboys and Fiji representative went to a car and got a knife, which he hid in his shorts, after an under-20s match between Penrith Brothers and Wentworthville Magpies in North Parramatta on Sunday.
He then allegedly stabbed three males – a 19-year-old Magpies player and two spectators, 16 and 22 – after a fight sparked in the carpark.
He will next appear in court in October.
