All Blacks bug battery was active: expert

August 08, 2017

All Blacks security consultant Adrian Gard is accused of making up claims about finding a bug.

The All Blacks did not want police involved after a bugging device was found in their Sydney hotel, a court has heard.

Paul Walters, former general manager for the InterContinental Hotel in Double Bay, told the Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday that the team manager was worried about publicity surrounding the discovery of the listening device.

The New Zealand rugby team's security guard Adrian Gard has pleaded not guilty to making up claims about finding the bug secreted in a chair in the team's meeting room in August last year.
