Exeter Chiefs scrum-half Nikola Matawalu has appeared in court charged with sexual assault.
The 27-year-old of Hayes Square, Exeter, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a pub in the city centre on 3 December.
The Fiji international, who represented his country at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, pleaded not guilty at Taunton Crown Court and was bailed to stand trial at the same venue on 10 August.
Matawalu joined the Exeter Chiefs from Bath in November.
A spokesman for Exeter Chiefs said the club would be making no comment while court proceedings are active.
