Maro Itoje’s agent handed 22-month ban for betting infractions

first_img StumbleUpon Related Articles SBC Roundtable: A new ‘Pace’ for live cricket trading July 8, 2020 Share Submit Share Matt Hart, the agent of Saracens and England international Maro Itoje, has been suspended for 22 months after placing 1,476 bets, via a bet365 account, on rugby matches over the course of a three and a half year period.The Rugby Football Union (RFU) registered agent who works for the Stellar Group Limited, was found to have placed the bets between 7 January 2013 and 31 July 2016, and was also guilty of failing “cooperate fully and accurately” when requested by an RFU Anti-Corruption Officer. Referencing a sample of ten bets placed between 6 March 2016 and 23 April 2016, the independent disciplinary panel found each to exceed £10,000, the highest of which was placed on the final day of the Six Nations in 2016 and valued at £16,234.59.Alys Lewis, RFU Anti-Corruption Officer, said: “This decision unequivocally demonstrates that any activity which undermines the integrity of our sport, and exposes players and rugby to potential integrity issues, will be treated seriously by the RFU.“The sums of money involved and the frequency and duration of the betting, coupled with the lack of cooperation with the RFU’s investigation, have all contributed to a substantial suspension from rugby union which is welcomed by the RFU.”Hart, who was under no suspicion of using inside information or trying to influence a match or its outcome, argued that the bets were placed on behalf of his father David.However, the panel found that “ it appears that the account was very substantially funded from elsewhere, as well as stating that Hart was “evasive and unclear in answers”.With the independent panel stating:  “We conclude that it is implausible that Matthew Hart was so naïve and never even questioned whether he should be conducting himself in the way he did.”Adding: “Despite the absence here of inside information used to make the bets there remains an obvious and significant damage to the integrity of the game. Matthew Hart was, through his role as an agent, linked to a number of first class rugby players. “His betting on rugby matches and on some occasions on games which involved some of those players, exposed both the players and the game of rugby to potential integrity issues.”The suspension will begin with immediate effect and end on 11 February 2020.

Olympic boxing greats Lomachenko, Rigondeaux fight as pros

Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson LATEST STORIES Then Lomachenko will try to cap his year by breaking through Rigondeaux’s often impenetrable defense.At 5-foot-6, the 29-year-old now living in California hardly looks intimidating. Lomachenko arrived for his news conference Thursday in a button-down shirt and thick glasses, a cerebral look for what figures to be a fierce night in the ring.Fitting, because this is a fight he’ll have to win as much with his mind as his muscle.“Of course, it’s going to be a very intelligent fight. Two guys meeting who really knows about boxing,” Lomachenko said through an interpreter. “So it’s an intelligent fight, brain fight.”Both fighters thrive in those, part of the reason they can’t land the bigger fights they want. They’re tough to even look good against, let alone beat, and many opponents want no part of that.So they ended up fighting each other, one of them perhaps headed to a loss that’s been so infrequent dating to their youth.“It’s going to be a great fight for the fans and it’s going to be a great historical fight that fans will forever look back on,” Rigondeaux said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny First he has to deal with Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), the 122-pound champion moving up two weight classes for an ESPN-televised chance to earn the appreciation that his unbeaten pro career hasn’t brought yet.“It’s a very important fight in my career,” Rigondeaux said through an interpreter. “It’s going to be a great show and I hope everybody appreciates the show we’re going to put on Saturday.”The Olympic gold medalist for Cuba at 119 pounds in 2000 and 2004 would have preferred it at a lighter weight, where he wouldn’t be giving up size to a fighter who has the offensive arsenal of Lomachenko. But 130 pounds was where Rigondeaux, 37, had to go to get the opportunity that has eluded him throughout his unbeaten career, even when he toppled Nonito Donaire in 2013 in a fight that gave him another title but not really many more fans.His defensive-minded style was the way to pile up the points as an amateur, where on top of his Olympic golds he also won world titles in 2001 and 2005, and Pan American Games gold medals in 2003 and 2005. But it hasn’t done much to make him marketable as a pro, where Lomachenko’s six straight victories by stoppage demonstrate the kind of aggression casual viewers favor.“Rigo has had a historic, legendary career as an Olympic fighter and now as a professional and this is a fight that he’s been waiting for his entire career, to bring him not just to the top of the pound-for-pound list, where he has always been, to bring him the exposure and the accolades as one of the most popular fighters in the world that he’s so deserving of,” promoter Dino Duva said. “But he’s never had the chance to get there. This is the fight that’s going to bring him over that hump.”The undercard includes American Shakur Stevenson, the 2016 Olympic silver medalist who sparred with Lomachenko during camp, as well as former Irish Olympic bronze medalist Michael Conlan. U.S. women’sOlympian Mikaela Mayer also is in one of the preliminary bouts.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ FILE – In this Aug. 23, 2008, file photo, Vasyl Lomachenko, of Ukrain,e reacts after defeating Khedafi Djelkhir, of France, during the men’s featherweight 57 kilogram final boxing match at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

It’s special for me. It will be interesting.”Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) won Olympic gold in 2008 and again four years later in London fighting at a different weight, the highlights of an amateur career in which the Ukrainian compiled a 396-1 record. He won a 126-pound belt in just his third pro fight in 2014, has made three defenses of the 130-pound title he won in 2016, and is likely headed for a move up to lightweight next year.last_img read more
