RFL hands out six-game ban

A rugby league player from Wales has been banned for six matches for racially abusing an opponent.

Tom Morgan, who plays for South Wales Scorpions, was found guilty by an RFL tribunal following an incident during a Championship One game against London Skolars last season.

A statement read: "Morgan, who failed to respond to contact from the RFL, was found guilty in his absence of using offensive or obscene language based on race or ethnic origin against London Skolars player Lamont Bryan."

Morgan has not played for the Scorpions since early July.
