From the article:

Dawson was in trouble earlier this year also, after being arrested in April and charged with obtaining by deception [less than $500] and being unlawfully in a yard after fleeing a taxi without paying.
Bit of a circus.

Dawson is not currently playing for the Sharks due to "personal reasons" and wasn't with the team when they were fighting New Plymouth. He has been out the last few games with no explanation except for "personal reasons", maybe they have suspended him quietly?

Culture problem at that club....Need to move quickly to limit the damage not that there hasn't already been carnage.
