Tonga king hit before Test

North Queensland Cowboys centre Willie Tonga was knocked unconscious in a Townsville nightclub just days before he received a late call-up into the Australia squad.

Shane Robert Alexander, 23, pleaded guilty to drunk and disorderly conduct in Townsville Magistrates Court on Thursday after he king-hit Tonga at the Mad Cow Tavern on Flinders St East in the early hours of May 2.
