WIgan Warriors have announced forward Tony Clubb will undergo an education and diversity programme and has also been fined two weeks wages after being found guilty of making a racist remark towards Hull FC forward Andre Savelio.
During the RFL investigation, character references were provided by other players and coaches at Wigan, including head coach, Adrian Lam, and club captain, Thomas Leuluai.
The Club also recognises that Clubb has expressed remorse for the comments he made and understands that they are unacceptable.
A statement from the club said: “The Club finds unequivocally that the language used by Clubb on this occasion is unacceptable and that abuse with reference to a person’s ethnicity has no place on a rugby pitch or in society.
“As a result, the Club’s disciplinary process has found that a further sanction to that issued by the Tribunal is appropriate and warranted.
“Following the outcome of this disciplinary process, it is confirmed that Clubb’s suspension has been lifted and he will return to training with the first team whilst serving his eight-match ban from playing.”
