Former Ireland secondrow Ryan Caldwell convicted of carrying knife

A former Irish international secondrow has been found guilty of carrying a blade in public at a court in the UK.

Ryan Caldwell pleaded guilty to carrying the knife which he said he had for the purposes of fishing.

Caldwell (33) with an address at Drumart Drive in Belfast, pleaded guilty to the offence of ‘possessing a bladed article in a public place’ on the 29th April.

Caldwell was found carrying the knife on High Street in Belfast City Centre.

The 6’7, 120kg Caldwell was capped twice for Ireland and enjoyed a playing career at Ulster Rugby, Bath Rugby and Exeter Chiefs.

He appeared at Belfast Magistrates’ Court, represented by his solicitor Andrew Russell. He initially denied the charge against him, as he maintained the knife was on his person for the purpose of a fishing trip.

His solicitor informed that the court that his client was abstaining from taking drugs.

Caldwell was released on continuing bail.

Caldwell pleaded guilty on Monday and will appear again in two weeks time for sentencing.
