'The matter is now being investigated by Hurricanes team management'
Retired All Black captain Tana Umaga and his Hurricanes teammate Chris Masoe are being investigated after an altercation at a Christchurch bar allegedly involving the two.


Hurricanes team management acknowledged the incident the players' alleged involvement in a terse and brief statement released on Sunday, but declined to elaborate.

Umaga turned 33 on Saturday, but it is not sure if the incident had something to do with his birthday and post-match celebrations.

Earlier in the day the Hurricanes were beaten 19-12 by the Crusaders in the inaugural Super 14 Final.

According to unconfirmed reports Masoe has assaulted a patron at a Christchurch bar in the early hours of Sunday morning and Umaga had then allegedly attacked Masoe, because of his behaviour. Some reports claimed that Umaga used a female's handbag to attack Masoe.

The Hurricanes statement: "Hurricanes team management have today [Sunday] been advised about an incident involving team members Chris Masoe and Tana Umaga at a Christchurch bar following Saturday night's Super 14 Final.

"The matter is now being investigated by Hurricanes team management and further information will be provided once the details surrounding the incident have been fully established.

"Due to the fact that information is still being gathered, it would be unfair to prejudge the events that occurred until a full and accurate picture is available."[/b]

Umaga 'hits Masoe with handbag'

From correspondents in Wellington, New Zealand
May 29, 2006

NEW Zealand rugby officials are investigating allegations that Hurricanes and All Blacks forward Chris Masoe punched a patron in a bar before being hit by teammate and former All Blacks captain Tana Umaga, who was armed with a woman's handbag.

Masoe, one of the 'Devil's Henchmen', the Hurricanes' trio of loose forwards, was reported to have burst out crying when Umaga hit him.

The brawl erupted at 7am yesterday morning after the Hurricanes had spent the night commiserating following their 19-12 Super 14 final loss to the Crusaders.

A 24-year-old Christchurch man, who did not want to be identified, told The Press that he was in a bar where Masoe, who had been drinking and playing pool, tripped over his feet.

Masoe then turned and punched the man in the jaw, the patron alleged.

"He just hit me in the side of the jaw. I was real shocked. I thought 'what the hell'. It just came out of nowhere," the man said.

"Then Umaga hit him a couple of times with the handbag as if to say 'you idiot'. Masoe started crying. It was crazy."

"I mean a handbag, of all things," she told The Press. "How hilarious... he hit him pretty hard. We heard it crack across the bar. He cracked him up the side of the head twice.

"The Chris guy got quite upset and started crying. They got them out the back door of the bar."
Hurricanes public relations manager Greg Palmer issued a statement saying team management had been advised about an incident involving Masoe and Umaga in a Christchurch bar.

"The matter is now being investigated by Hurricanes team management, and further information will be provided once the details surrounding the incident have been fully established," Palmer said.

"Due to the fact that information is still being gathered, it would be unfair to prejudge the events that occurred until a full and accurate picture is available."

All Blacks manager Darren Shand would not say whether the incident would affect Masoe's future, but he said all incidents involving All Blacks players and alcohol were investigated, even if the players concerned were not in camp with the Test squad at the time.

"We need to investigate the incident and then determine what happens from there," Shand said.

The incident is the second involving the Hurricanes this year.

Jerry Collins and Lome Fa'atau were involved in a bar altercation in South Africa in March.
