Tony Clubb’s version of events with Andre Savelio revealed

Tony Clubb received an eight-match ban and a £500 fine after being found guilty of an alleged racist remark against Hull FC’s Andre Savelio.

However, the Wigan man has denied the accusation, stating that the conversation on the field went a lot different to what Savelio himself said.

As such, the RFL has released the details of the hearing in which Clubb professed his innocence.

Clubb, after tackling the Hull man, claimed he said “this is too easy” to which Savelio replied “bro, I will bang you, you fat c***.”

The Warriors forward then retorted “who the f*** are you, you silly c***”, with Savelio saying i reply “bro just run it straight in”.

“You silly c***, you’re from Warrington. You’re not Polynesian you c***”.

The Hull man had accused Clubb of calling him a “stupid Polynesian c***”.

Tony Clubb denied the accusation of racially abusing Hull FC forward Andre Savelio in his tribunal hearing.

Kris Radlinski, Wigan’s executive director, had told the panel that Clubb completely denied saying what he was accused to have said. But, despite the judge not brandishing Clubb a racist after character witness statements, the Wigan was still handed the lengthy ban.
