    Former New Zealand Rugby boss David Moffett is calling for Blues captain Dalton Papali'i to miss the Super Rugby final - should the Blues make it - in the wake of his speeding incident

    Former New Zealand Rugby boss David Moffett is calling for Blues captain Dalton Papali'i to miss the Super Rugby final - should the Blues make it - in the wake of his speeding incident


    The All Black is awaiting disciplinary action from NZR after being pulled over by police on Auckland's Southern Motorway for driving at over 150 kilometres per hour.

    Papali'i won't feature in tonight's semi final against the Brumbies and is unlikely to be available for next weekend after undergoing surgery for appendicitis.

    Moffett says Papali'i should be fined and forced to sit out any remaining Super Rugby.
