    Zac Guildford has voluntarily stood himself down from all Crusaders related activities after becoming involved in another incident on Saturday night.

    The details of the incident, which occurred at a house party, are still not clear but after multiple alcohol related incidents and suspensions the future of the star winger looks very murky.

    Last year Guildford was suspended for four matches for becoming intoxicated and fighting locals, whilst naked, in a Rarotonga bar.

    Guildford voluntarily gave up alcohol for a year and had looked to have turned over a new leaf before last nights incident.

    "We and the Crusaders were very disappointed to learn of this incident. As a result, the NZRU has initiated misconduct proceedings against Zac," said NZRU Chief Executive Steve Tew.

    "We will be meeting with Zac and his representative in the following week to discuss the matter, and next steps.

    "As his employer, we want to ensure that the process respects Zac's right to a fair hearing so we do not wish to comment further at this stage."
