- A security consultant employed by the All Blacks denies a charge of false representation over a bugging scandal involving the world champions, his lawyer said Tuesday. Adrian Gard was charged in February after a bug was allegedly discovered during a routine check of a hotel meeting room before the Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia last August. The 51-year-old, who has worked with the New Zealanders for several years, appeared in Sydney's Waverley Local Court. He denies one count of false representation resulting in a police investigation, his lawyer Simon Joyner said. Domestic reports said police will allege Gard planted the bug himself and then "found" it.
