Canberra fullback Jack Wighton has pleaded guilty to assaulting three men and public urination outside a Civic nightclub in Canberra on February 3.

The Raiders star appeared at the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to two charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and one charge of public urination.

Seven other charges against Wighton were withdrawn.

Wighton will need to face court against next week on July 6.

The alleged incidents took place in the early hours of the morning, with the Sydney Morning Herald suggesting officers received reports of the assaults at around 3am.

Canberra’s chief executive Don Furner attended Wighton’s hearing.

His availability for Saturday’s must-win clash with Brisbane is now up in the air.
