A former Australian rugby union player was being investigated in connection with the alleged rape of a female sergeant at Brisbane's police academy, according to an Australian newspaper.
A report in the Queensland newspaper "The Courier-Mail" claimed the man was being investigated by the Criminal Justice Commission and police about an incident at the Queensland Police Service Academy.
