Wigan Warriors prop, Taulima Tautai, was convicted of drink driving at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates’ Court earlier today (Wednesday 12th June).
Wigan Warriors Executive Director, Kris Radlinski, commented: “Firstly, I’d like to make clear that we are extremely disappointed with Taulima’s actions in the early hours of Sunday the 26th May. Drink driving is completely unacceptable and now that matter has been dealt with by the courts Taulima now faces the consequences of his actions.
“We will now go through an internal disciplinary process with him (Tautai), and until that has run its course we will not be making any further comment.”
The player will not be considered for selection until the Club’s internal disciplinary process has concluded.
