Manu Samoa sevens captain Alatasi Tupou has pleaded guilty to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving without a valid license in the District Court.

The Samoa Observer reported Tupou's plea was entered by his lawyer.

During the proceedings, prosecuting lawyer Vaisala Afoa revealed that Tupou, who was suspended from all rugby for two weeks, had an outstanding warrant of arrest from 2016 for a separate charge of assault.

Sentencing has been set for next Friday.

Last week, the Samoa Rugby Union suspended the 30‑year‑old Tupou for two weeks after he was stood down from the London and Paris legs of the World Sevens Series.
