Two teenagers will go on trial over the death of 15-year-old Stephen Dudley at an Auckland school rugby training session.

Stephen was allegedly assaulted by two teenagers on June 6. He was rushed to Auckland City Hospital but died. Two youths aged 15 and 17 were charged with manslaughter.

The pair appeared yesterday in the High Court at Auckland and were committed for trial. Both pleaded not guilty. The trial is scheduled to begin on February 10.
