Maika Sivo misses start of Parramatta Eels preseason

The alleged incident is reported to have taken place on Saturday night involving a staff member at a resort in Nadi.

Mr Sivo was granted bail in the Nadi Magistrates court on Monday but he was also issued a stop departure order, preventing him from returning to Australia in time for the start of the Sydney league club's pre-season training on Thursday.

Sivo is due back in the Nadi Magistrate's Court on Tuesday next week.

Maika Sivo wants travel ban lifted despite indecent assault charge

Having spent Sunday night in a jail cell, Sivo fronted Nadi Magistrate Court on Monday morning and was granted bail on a bond of $500 following an incident at a luxury Nadi resort late on Boxing Day in which he allegedly tugged a waitress' dress.

Magistrate Peni Dalituicama also placed a stop travel order on the 26-year-old, telling him he would have to face court again on January 7 to enter a plea — the day after he is due to start training with the Eels in preparation for the 2020 season.

Paramatta Eels star Sivo granted bail

The 26 year-old winger is alleged to have indecently assaulted a female staff of a resort on Denarau.

The incident is alleged to have taken place on Boxing Day.

Sivo’s lawyer Mosese Naivalu in court pleaded for his client to be released on bail and stated that the Paramatta Eels winger was scheduled to return to Sydney later this week for pre-season training.

Bail was granted by Magistrate Peni Dalituicama, however a stop departure order was placed on Sivo.

The case will be called again on the 7th of January 2020 for plea.


Sivo, Brown keep Eels on finals charge

Tries to Maika Sivo and Dylan Brown in the first half enabled the Eels to take  a 10-0 lead into the break, but the second period proved far more difficult for the visitors to put the Dragons away.

St George Illawarra lost winger Zac Lomax in the pre-game warm-up to a hamstring concern with Mikaele Ravalawa coming into the side in No.21 jersey as a replacement.

Ravalawa helped get the Dragons on the board in the 47th minute to narrow the visitors' lead after a Corey Norman cross-field kick fell back to James Graham, who helped send the Fijian flyer over in the corner.
