Howley banned for 18 months

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!
