Walking the plank

Justin "the Plank" Harrison, the Aussie lock, has been banned for eight months by the RFU after admitting taking cocaine when out on the lash with colleagues from Bath Rugby Club at the club's end-of-season party bash in London.

During the night in question Harrison also managed to get punched to the floor in a scuffle with un-named Quins players.

According to Harrison it was an isolated incident that did not involve any other Bath player - he took the cocaine on his own and he had never taken the drug during any rugby season in the past.

All of which sounds somewhat far fetched, given the Matt Stevens cocaine scandal and the investigation into the cases of Michael Lipman, Alex Crockett and Andrew Higgins which will be heard next week...

So, eight months for Harrison and two years for Stevens?

Go figure.
