A rape allegation made by a Cape Town woman is focused on one member of the Baby Blacks, the New Zealand Rugby Union says.
South African paper The New Age earlier reported a gang rape complaint had been made against four members of the New Zealand Under-20 rugby team after their loss in South Africa on Friday night.
In a statement, the NZRU said the issue was raised by local police in Cape Town before the team left the country, and that the complaint was made against one player.
"Our understanding of the matter is that the allegation is focused on one player."
The NZRU said the team and management complied with local police requirements and that police indicated they were happy for all team members to travel home.
"The team has just returned from South Africa, and we will discuss the matter further with team management in due course."
The New Age reported forensic experts were at the Southern Sun Hotel Newlands on Saturday morning looking for DNA samples.
A police spokesperson confirmed a complaint had been laid, but the woman could not identify the alleged offenders because she could not remember the incident.
