Rob Howley has issued a public apology after being banned from rugby for placing bets on matches involving Wales and two of their players.

Howley, former assistant to Wales coach Warren Gatland, was sent home from the World Cup in September and was suspended for 18 months by the Welsh Rugby Union on Monday, with nine months of the sanction suspended.

“I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all those close to me and everyone this has affected, especially the rugby community, close colleagues and above all my family,” Howley said in a statement.

“I am an extremely private man, and unfortunately it was this that kept me silent as I battled my demons following my sister’s tragic death.”

It was found that, over a four-year period from November 2015 to September 2019, Howley placed 363 bets involving 1,163 rugby matches with three bookmakers through accounts held under his own name.
