    It's disappointing if not surprising to see that the gutter press isn't a purely British phenomenon

    Brings back memories of David Hookes - let's hope there is a different outcome

    More coming to light:

    New Zealand cricketer Jesse Ryder tried to fight back as four men "absolutely smashed him" in a Christchurch bar last night, a witness says.

    Ryder is understood to be in intensive care at Christchurch Hospital with a fractured skull.

    An eye witness, who only wanted to be known as Adam, said Ryder had his shirt ripped off his back and was on the ground as four men kicked and punched him outside Aikmans Bar in Merivale.

    Ryder was lying in a bush "shaking, vomiting and covered in blood" in the car park of Merivale McDonald's, which is opposite the bar, when two ambulances arrived to assist him shortly after midnight.

    Adam, who was drinking at the bar, said the brawl broke out behind him.

    "From what I could tell it looked pretty unprovoked," he said.

    Four caucasian men, believed to be in their lates 20s, started punching Ryder in the bar's outdoor courtyard and the fight was quickly pushed out on to Aikmans Rd, Adam said.

    "Four dudes were just laying into him and absolutely smashing him on the ground. His shirt was ripped off and they were kicking him and punching him while he was down."

    Ryder managed to stand up during the attack but was quickly knocked back to the ground, Adam said.

    He was not sure if the men were friends of Ryder, but said they "damn knew who he was".

    Ryder's attackers were swearing at him as they beat him.

    The four men ran off when police sirens were heard, he said.

    Apparently Ryder was with about 6 other Wellington players at the bar. I wonder where they were during the attack? Had they already left at that stage? Or was Jesse attacked while popping outside for a ciggy or something? So many questions...

    How does this even happen at a bar with witnesses? I've seen a few fights in my time but if it's in a public place like a bar isn't there usually bouncers/security who break it up if it's one guy being beaten on by a group? Wouldn't bystanders try to intervene when it's 4 on 1 in a busy bar?

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    There were no bouncers because it was a wednesday which is usually a quiet night, apparently.

    Terrible news.

    I hope he comes through it without any lasting effects.

    It sounds like it was a cowardly attack, too. Disgusting. I hope Ryder recovers and the police catch those responsible.

    Jesse Ryder beaten up outside Chch bar

    By: Newstalk ZB and Radio Sport staff | Latest Cricket News | Thursday March 28 2013 9:52

    Jesse Ryder is in an induced coma in Christchurch Hospital, with what's believed to be a fractured skull and collapsed lung after being beaten up in the city.

    In a statement police say they're investigating an incident at a bar in Merivale in the early hours of this morning.

    A witness says he helped drag three men off the 28-year-old outside Aikman's Bistro and Bar on the corner of Aikmans and Papanui Roads in Merivale early this morning.

    He says he only realised it was Jesse Ryder when he saw him on the ground.

    He says Jesse Ryder stood up, some friends were with him, and they walked off together.

    Police investigating the alleged assault say they have yet to make any arrests.

    Alysha Green was at Aikman's Bar in Merivale last night and says Ryder was with a number of his Wellington Firebirds teammates but there was no trouble at all in the bar.

    "No we were sitting at the table here outside all night and nothing. Like I said, they were the only other young group here."

    Aikman's Bar owner Steven Holmes says the altercation took place off his premises and he won't comment on whether Ryder - who has a history of problems with alcohol - was drinking.

    Murray Traill owns McDonald's in the area and says they'll speak to their staff and go through their CCTV footage.

    "Really keen to find out what we can and obviously help the police if they're interested, I'm sure they are."

    One witness says he helped move on two or three men who were involved in an attack.

    He says he only realised it was Jesse Ryder when he saw him on the ground.

    He says Jesse Ryder stood up, some friends were with him, and they walked off together.

    Family members and Jesse Ryder's manager is heading to Christchurch to be by his side.

    His manager Aaron Klee has tweeted "Thanks for the calls and msgs of support for Jesse. Just heading to Chch to see him.".

    In another post on Twitter, New Zealand Cricket says it's thoughts are with Jesse Ryder.

    Cricket commentator Bryan Waddle says it's devastating news.

    "He did seem to attract attention and other people at times have looked to provoke him. I think he was making huge progress in his life."

    Ryder was due to leave the country shortly to take part in the IPL.

    Ryder played for the Wellington Firebirds yesterday in their Ford Trophy semi-final loss to the Wizards.
