Multiple reports coming out of Japan have stated that Wales assistant coach Rob Howley has been sent home from the Rugby World Cup following an alleged breach of World Rugby’s regulation six which covers anti-corruption and betting.
Howley is alleged to have place bets on rugby matches and will be provisionally suspended from all rugby matters and therefore banned with immediate effect from the World Cup pending a disciplinary hearing.
Players at all levels, agents, match officials, disciplinary personnel, coaching and backroom staff, owners and directors — are not allowed to bet on any rugby match.
Regulation 6.3.1 states: ‘No Connected Person shall, directly or indirectly, bet and/or attempt to bet on the outcome or any aspect of any Connected Event and/or receive and/or attempt to receive part or all of the proceeds of any such bet and/or any other benefit in relation to a bet.’
