Fiji Water Flying Fijians lock forward Api Ratuniyarawa has admitted to sexually assaulting three women in a Cardiff city centre bar.
Ratuniyarawa pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault between October 31st and 1st November this year.
He committed the offence while on tour with the Barbarians’ side that played Wales last month.
A court previously heard the three attacks happened independently of each other and none of the victims knew Ratuniyarawa or each other.
Ratuniyarawa’s lawyer Ruth Smith says the assaults arose out of primarily the consumption of alcohol and adds that the defendant is the sole breadwinner for the family.
She asked for an extension to his already "stringent" bail conditions ahead of his sentencing on 9th January.
Smith says he and his family, which included his wife and four children, had strong residential ties to the UK and he would not pose a flight risk.
She says Ratuniyarawa has various appointments in place with respect to securing financial stability for his family.
The bail application was accepted by Judge Tracey Lloyd-Clarke and Ratuniyarawa cannot leave his house between 7pm to 7am and must report to Northampton police station every day.
He is also banned from coming into Wales, except for his sentencing hearing, and from contacting his victims in any way.
Ratuniyarawa denied two further charges of sexual assault relating to one of the women and prosecutors said the pleas were acceptable to the Crown.
The 37-year-old has also been placed on the sex offenders register.
