...I now wish to apologise publicly to her and her family for my behaviour in Fiji that night.No ifs, no buts, no blaming the victim, no excuses. Just fronting up.
It was unacceptable and in no way provoked by her or any other person.
The day after I genuinely tried to express my sincere regret to her for my actions. I can understand how upset she was.
I hope our meeting and the apology will bring closure to her and her family over an incident of which I am truly remorseful.
I have nothing further to add to this statement.
Well done Robin Brooke*. Hopefully his remorse will serve as a good example to others to just not do this crap in the first place.
* And as a massive disliker of the Auckland rugby team I never thought I would write those words.
