Wighton sentencing for assault set for November

Raiders fullback Jack Wighton's immediate playing future is still up in the air after his sentencing for an assault in Canberra earlier this year has been set for November.

Wighton appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Friday morning after last month he pleaded guilty to charges of assault and public urination from an incident in February at a Canberra nightspot.

The Canberra Times reported Wighton's lawyer applied to have the CCTV footage of the NRL star's brawl with three players suppressed from being released to the public.

Canberra's board is due to meet on Friday afternoon to discuss the incident.

The Raiders, who stood Wighton down last week after consultation with the NRL Integrity Unit, are expected to announce the club's sanctions.

He was not chosen in Canberra's 21-man squad to face the Bulldogs this Saturday night at Belmore.

Wighton will not appear in court again until November 14.
