NRL player Zane Musgrove intends to plead not guilty to indecently assaulting a woman in a beachside Sydney pub, a court has been told.

The 22-year-old Wests Tigers prop appeared in Waverley Local Court on Wednesday, accused of assaulting a 22-year-old woman early on November 24 at the Coogee Bay Hotel.

The former Rabbitohs player's lawyer Michael Bowe indicated his client will be entering not guilty pleas on all three charges, including aggravated indecent assault and common assault.

Musgrove's bail - which includes a condition he not approach the pub - was continued.
