Rugby league: Player hit with eight-game ban after biting opponent's penis in a match
MELBOURNE (REUTERS) - An Australian rugby league player has been banned for eight matches after being accused of biting an opponent's penis during a tackle in a local league game.
Anthony Watts, a former player in Australia's top-flight National Rugby League, was charged following a video review of the Gold Coast match last week.
Footage of the match posted on YouTube showed the 26-year-old Tugun Seahawks utility pulled down in a tackle near the tryline and subsequently involved in a melee by remonstrating players for the opposing Bilambil Jets team.
The video later showed one of the Jets players pulling down his shorts in front of the referee.
