Three charges of assault against All Black Shannon Frizell have been dismissed after the 27-year-old completed police diversion.

His case was called in the Dunedin District Court this morning, though he was excused from appearing.

The charges relate to an incident in a Dunedin bar in May, where he was accused of assaulting a woman and her partner.

A police spokesperson confirmed the charges were withdrawn after Frizell completed diversion.

Police also confirmed he was not required to meet with the victims.
