Blues' midfielder Francis Saili will keep his criminal record clean after admitting to a driving charge.

APNZ reports Saili received a discharge without conviction at the Manukau District Court today after earlier pleading guilty to a charge of driving while suspended.

He lost his licence after racking up demerit points.

Judge Jonathan Moses said he took into account an affidavit from Blues coach Sir John Kirwan, who said a criminal record would have a "severe" effect on Saili's future international rugby career.
