Savea who fronts the 'Its not OK' anti violence campaign has been protected by the NRZU and his teammates who are seen to be making excuses for the violent treatment of his partner.

Yet 'regular folk who struggle with these demons are considered bad eggs'. NZRU should simply come out and say Family Violence is Not OK. More of that story here and a related Herald opinion piece
