So the truth has finally come out – Howley was found guilty of making 363 bets over 4 years. That’s a bet every 4 days! Bottom line, banned from rugby for 18 months with 9 of those suspended. Makes it possible for him to return to the game in June 2020 (taking into account the 3 months of the investigation). Seems to me like a deep rooted problem for the fella, hope he can turn himself around.
Apparently he was using his WRU mobile to make the bets and lost £4,000!
