Former New Zealand rugby union star Mils Muliaina has been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.

The 34-year-old, who currently plays for Connacht, is suspected of involvement in an incident in Cardiff last month.

He was shown on television being taken away by police after the final whistle of his team's European Challenge Cup quarter-final match at Gloucester last night.

Muliaina earned 100 caps as he wore the All Blacks number 15 jersey with distinction for nine years. He retired in 2011.

A spokesman for Gloucestershire Police said: "A man in his 30s was arrested at Kingsholm Stadium on Friday 3rd April on suspicion of sexual assault in relation to an incident in Cardiff in March.

"He has been released on police bail pending further investigation."

Details of the incident have not been confirmed. Muliaina was in the Welsh capital playing for Connacht against Cardiff Blues on March 6.
