Craig Field guilty of Manslaughter

Former NRL player Craig Field has been found guilty of the one-punch killing of a cattle farmer at a pub in 2012.

The former South Sydney rugby league captain was accused of murdering Tweed cattle farmer Kelvin Kane outside a hotel in July 2012.

A Supreme Court jury in Lismore today found him not guilty of murder, but guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter.
