The Blues rugby player Tasesa Lavea has been charged with driving with excess breath alcohol and will appear in court next month.

The Blues CEO Andy Dalton says the incident happened last week and Lavea immediately notified the Blues about the matter.

Lavea says he made a bad decision and will now face up to the consequences of his actions.

Dalton says the incident did not involve any other Blues' players.
