    <h2>On notice: Sitiveni Sivivatu</h2>


    @@@@SPAN id="intelliTXT">All
    Black and Chiefs flyer Sitiveni Sivivatu has been "placed on notice" by
    the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU), after they found him guilty of
    serious misconduct.

    The winger, who last month pleaded guilty to assault against his
    wife and was discharged without conviction in the Hamilton District
    Court, faced a review of his conduct by his employer, the NZRU, under
    the terms of his contract and the Collective Employment Agreement.

    Following a hearing held earlier this week, Sivivatu received a formal warning and agreed to on-going counselling.

    "Siti [Sivivatu] has faced the courts, and as a result of that
    verdict was subject to intense public scrutiny. In the context of our
    misconduct process, it was important to ensure that any additional
    punishment from the NZRU was commensurate with the offence," NZRU
    deputy CEO Steve Tew said in a statement.

    "The formal warning puts him on notice that we take the matter
    very seriously while the requirement for counselling is to help Siti
    work to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again."

    Tew said the NZRU, along with the Super 14 franchises and New
    Zealand Rugby Players' Association, put significant emphasis on
    developing players to manage the pressures inherent in being a
    professional rugby player and a public figure.

    "Clearly, we are very concerned when incidents such as these occur
    which is why we have processes in place to deal with them. At the same
    time, our major concern is that our employees and their families - in
    this case Sitiveni and his wife - have access to the support and help
    they need to deal with these issues."

    Sivivatu, accompanied by his representative from Inside Running,
    reiterated his earlier public apology in the hearing conducted by NZRU
    Professional Rugby Manager Neil Sorensen and All Blacks Manager Darren

    "My wife and I are pleased with this result and we will move
    forward together from now on. I look forward to concentrating on my
    rugby in the weeks ahead," Sivivatu said.@@@@/SPAN>

          very suspicious alright. obviously the all blacks conditioning programme went a little bit TOO well


            In fairness. You're instilling aggression in a player be that pharmacologically or psychologically via training régimes. Some people are going to be very receptive to that off of the bat and quite simply do not have the social skills to know when that aggression needs to be set aside.
