With a decision regarding his future set to be made on Monday, Brisbane young gun David Fifita has been forced to remain in an Indonesian jail for an extra night.
Security guard Dani Irawan, the 19-year-old's alleged assault victim, agreed to drop formal charges via a peace agreement on Sunday, which means it is now up to the head of Bali's police department to approve Fifita's release.
Monday's likely release follows what has been a turbulent weekend for the second-rower, who has been behind bars since the alleged assault took place on Saturday morning.
Fifita's lawyer, Muhammad Rifan, told media in Bali that formal charges against a remorseful Fifita had been dropped.

"Broncos management and my client David apologise to Dani," Rifan said.
"And he has agreed to accept his apology.
"We also apologise to La Favela and to Bali.
"Along with the peace agreement, Dani has also signed the document revoking the police report.
"[Dani] hereby officialy asked the report to be dropped.
"We asked to be forgiven, to Dani Irawan specifically and La Favela, it was accepted.
"We are glad."
Meanwhile, Dani said he had no familiarity with Fifita, and that his priority at the time was to avoid escalating the situation.
"Yesterday, David might have intentionally hit me, I was surprised," Dani told local media.
"I looked at him, after I saw him, he stopped.
"I stayed away to avoid a fight.
"I don't know who he was, I never knew him."
Fifita has reportedly attracted multi-million dollar contract offers from multiple clubs.
