Welsh prop fined for Lions pub assault

A court sentenced Welsh international rugby player Craig Mitchell to a suspended six-month jail term on Friday for an unprovoked pub assault after a British and Irish Lions game in Australia. Mitchell, who has made 15 appearances for Wales, was also fined Aus$1,800 (US$1667) and had to pay solicitor Cian Barry Aus$3,000 (US$2778) in compensation after knocking him out with a single punch. Mitchell, 27, admitted wading into an altercation between fans that Barry was trying to calm down at a Brisbane bar in the early hours of last Sunday after the Lions beat the Wallabies.
