Arscott given written warning over inside information

Tom Arscott has now left Sale.

Former Sale player Tom Arscott has received a written warning over the passing of inside information to his brother Luke before the Sharks' Aviva Premiership match at Bristol.

Tom Arscott was last month sacked by Sale after allegedly leaking information to Bristol player Luke in a meeting at the club's hotel in the west country city on New Year's Eve - a day before the Sharks went down 24-23 at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The Rugby Football Union (RFU), which on Monday announced it had concluded its investigation, said the information fell "at the lower end of the scale of seriousness", but deemed the player's behaviour "inappropriate".
