Hock, 39, was remanded in custody and will appear in court at a later date, according to Greater Manchester Police.


‘Gareth Hock from Wigan has been charged with multiple offences including rape, assault, and controlling or coercive behavior,’ according to a police statement.

‘He has been remanded in custody and will appear in court at a later date,’ the statement said.

The former international was charged with assault and controlling and coercive behavior earlier this month.

The other charges were based on events that occurred between January 1, 2009 and November 11, 2022.

Hock was arrested on February 14th and appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court.

He is scheduled to appear in Manchester Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing on an unspecified date.

‘A Wigan man has been charged with multiple offences and remanded in custody,’ said GMP Wigan West on Facebook yesterday.

They listed two counts of rape, five counts of assault causing actual bodily harm, controlling or coercive behavior, assault by beating, acting with intent to pervert the course of justice, failing to stop, and failing to report an accident.

Hock, born Gareth Charnock, is accused of crashing an Audi A6 in Orrell in November 2022 and driving away without stopping.

Hock previously played international rugby for the United Kingdom (2006) and England (2008-12), including a spot in the 2008 World Cup squad.

Between 2003 and 2013, he appeared in 191 games for Wigan Warriors, scoring 48 tries.

After 16 years of professional rugby, he retired in 2019.
