Manu Hausia has been jailed for six-year six-month term. His sentence was reduced due to factors including Hausia’s guilty pleas, his difficulties in serving a jail term in New Zealand, and his previous good character, reported New Zealand media.

Fainu released from custody over stabbing charges

Fainu has spent the past two weeks in Parklea Correctional Centre after allegedly stabbing a 24-year-old man in the back in Wattle Grove last month.

Given the severity of charges against him, Fainu remains stood down from playing duties under the NRL's no-fault stand down rule until his case is finalised in court.
