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. He faces court for common assault on her. NZRU wants a programme to help its young players like Savea, come to terms with their high pressured professional environment.
