Cornwall forward banned for TWO MONTHS after using homophobic language

Luke Collins of Cornwall RLFC has been suspended for eight matches and fined £75 after pleading guilty to using homophobic language in the Betfred League One fixture against Doncaster on July 9.

The independent Operational Rules Tribunal were informed that in addition to apologising for his use of unacceptable language, the player and the Cornwall club had already requested and received educational training on the subject of diversity and equality.

The Oldham forward Luke Nelmes was suspended for five matches, and fined £75, after pleading guilty to a Grade D charge of dangerous contact in the defeat against Rochdale Hornets on July 10, also in Betfred League One.

Cornwall tweeted: “Luke Collins has been suspended for eight games and fined £75 following his recent red card against Doncaster. The club wish to release the following statement and Luke a public apology. The club will make no further comment on this matter.”
