Time could be up for troubled rugby player Zac Guildford.
Guilford’s career appears to be nearing an end after the troubled winger was surprisingly left out of Tasman’s Mitre 10 Cup side. The reason for Tasman’s decision is down to Guilford’s continued problems off the field, problems that haven’t stopped since returning from Sydney.
In the last year, Guilford has parted ways with two prominent rugby clubs due to his issues off the field. After leaving French club Clermont, Guildford parted ways with the NSW Waratahs prior to the end of this years Super Rugby season.
It is a tremendous shame for Guilford, a youngster still, and someone who was once touted for great things in rugby. During the 2011 Rugby World Cup, Guilford was lightening when given his opportunities with the All Blacks.
Issues with alcohol have seen Guilford involved in several incidents, including in Raratonga where the rugby player was naked and assaulted two people.
Earlier in the day, Guildford tweeted that life was fantastic.
Life is fantastic absolutely fantastic. New journey. New beginnings. 😁

It is understood that Guildford won’t have a place with Hawkes Bay, which is believed to have been decided already by team management.
