RUGBY player Amenoni Nasilasila’s bail has been extended by the High Court in Suva.

Nasilasila appeared before judge Justice Daniel Goundar today.

He is charged with one count of rape and is alleged to have raped a 24-year-old woman in Sigatoka on December 22 last year.

State lawyer Siteri Navia informed the court that the matter was listed for a pre-trial conference (PTC) and they were liaising with the complainant who was residing in the US.

Defence lawyer Unaisi Baleilevuka sought time to go through the proposed agreed facts.

Justice Goundar set a trial date from September 16 to September 20 this year.

The trial will be held at the High Court in Lautoka.

The case has been adjourned to September 2 for the final PTC.
