A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Wallabies winger Digby Ioane after he failed to appear in a Melbourne court on an assault charge.

Ioane, 27, is facing a charge of unlawful assault after he allegedly assaulted a man in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran on March 9.

A magistrate issued the warrant when Ioane did not appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday.

Ioane plays for the Queensland Reds in the Super Rugby competition and was part of Australia's team that narrowly lost the first Test to the British and Irish Lions on Saturday night.
