Posted by

Newcastle Thunder centre Misi Taulapapa has been banned for eight matches after being found guilty of biting.

It was alleged he had bitten forward Emmerson Whittel on his arm, during their promotion playoff final against Oldham.

The Samoan pleaded guilty, and will now miss the Thunder’s first eight games of 2020.

Thunder director of rugby Denis Betts said the player had shown “considerable remorse” for his actions.
