Howley Heads Home

Welsh World Cup preparations have been thrown into turmoil with news breaking today that assistant coach Rob Howley has been sent home for allegedly breaching World Rugby betting rules.

We don't yet know the details - and 'innocent until proven guilty' obviously applies - but clearly the alleged offence is sufficiently serious for Howley to have been sent home.

Although hardly likely to affect Welsh chances against Georgia in six days time, I'm sure that this is a more than  unwelcome distraction for the squad and something Warren Gatland needed like a hole in the head.
