Hooker Dane Coles has been fined $1000 by the New Zealand Rugby Union and suspended for one match by his Hurricanes team.

The punishment was announced today, after Coles was arrested in Paraparaumu last Saturday night for disorderly behaviour.

He was found heavily intoxicated by police and became aggressive when they offered him a lift home.

NZRU general manager professional rugby, Neil Sorensen, said while Coles' case was still before the courts, both the NZRU and Hurricanes decided to fast track their investigation of the incident.

The suspension means Coles, 22, will miss the Hurricanes' Super 14 match against the Crusaders in Christchurch on Friday night.

Sorensen said Coles would also undertake appropriate counselling for alcohol and behaviour management, and he had received a formal warning about future similar misconduct.

The punishment handed out to Coles is identical to that taken against Highlanders wing Fetu'u Vainikolo last week following another alcohol-related incident.

Vainikolo was fined $1000 and suspended for one match.

He was still found drunk and disordely - the Vainikolo incident actually worked against him by setting a standard that would've made the Canes management look very bad if they didn't meet it. Really bad thing to happen to the Canes though, especially with Hore out for at least another week and, frankly, I don't rate Ged Robinson at all...

He only got disorderly because the police got involved when he was doing nothing wrong. Its a case of the police seeing a super 14 player and trying to set an example if it was you or me they would have ignored us and not offered us a lift home and then we wouldnt have been arrested for declining that ride home.

This is ridiculous, let the man be drunk in public in peace with out having to deal with ridiculous consequences. We need all the help we can get if we are going to beat the Crusaders at Chch, having our no.1 & 2 hookers out is not at all good. Hopefully our 'big guns' back line runs rings around the Crusaders.
