All Blacks and Hurricanes winger Julian Savea has been remanded on bail at his court appearance this morning.
The 22-year-old appeared in the Wellington District Court facing one charge of assault following a domestic incident last Sunday.
Applications from media to take photographs and film proceedings were denied.
Savea made no comment to media during today's appearance but fronted a press conference yesterday where he apologised for his actions.
"To my partner and her family I just want to say that I'm sorry," Savea said.
"To have someone that you love and care so much for, to be in this situation, I know it's hurting them and it's definitely hurting me, so I apologise to them."
The nine-Test All Black will re-appear in the Wellington District Court on May 15.
