An England rugby league player has been filmed tackling a door and winning at a student party.

Josh Hodgson was at a party in Dunedin, New Zealand, after the national team was sent packing after a 16-14 defeat to the host country.

Hodgson, who left Hull KR to play for the Canberra Raiders, was filmed being goaded into taking the challenge.

The door definitely comes off worse as he takes a run up and goes straight through it.

The team manager, Jon Roberts, said: "We were made aware of an incident that occurred last night. It is being dealt with internally with the person involved and he will be disciplined.

"The players were given permission to go out after last night’s [Saturday’s] game. On behalf of the English Rugby League we apologise for the behaviour and have arranged for the repair of the small amount of damage."
