August 7, 2018 12:30 am
Former All Black halfback Piri Weepu has admitted to drink driving in Lower Hutt last month.
The 34-year-old was charged with driving with excess breath alcohol on Victoria Street in Petone last month.
The 2011 World Cup star tweeted that he was due in Hutt Valley District Court this morning and would plead guilty.
He has since done so and was fined $600 and disqualified from driving for six months.
Weepu had initially fought for name suppression.
The former Hurricanes star played 73 tests for the All Blacks from 2004-2013.
Meanwhile, All Blacks will take on Australia next Saturday at 11.05pm.
