The New Zealand Warriors player Kevin Locke faces an uncertain time after court action for a third driving offence.
The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while disqualified, arising from an incident in May.
Locke didn't appear when his case went before the Auckland District Court. He's due to be sentenced on December 6th.
Locke now faces a fine or time in prison although his lawyer has asked for a community-based sentence.
