A FORMER Grafton Rhinos rugby league coach facing a murder charge is free on bail.

 

Shaun Fathers, who coached the Rhinos at the beginning of the 2011 season, and former NRL star Craig Field were charged with murdering Cudgera Creek farmer Kelvin Kane in a pub fight last month.

 

Field remains behind bars for his part in the alleged king hit murder of Mr Kane.

 

Fathers was released on conditional bail at Lismore Local court on July 24.

 

This was the day before hundreds of mourners packed a Murwillumbah church to farewell the popular horseman and cattle farmer.

 

Fathers, 41, and Field, 39, are due to face Lismore Local court on August 21.

 

Fathers is expected to appear in person, while Field, who is currently on remand in Grafton jail, is scheduled to appear via video link.

 

Mr Kane died on July 16 after suffering massive head injuries from an alleged fatal punch outside the Kingscliff Beach Hotel the previous night.
