Toulouse half back Corey Norman faces EIGHT-game ban for allegedly sticking his finger up opponent’s BUM


COREY NORMAN faces a ban of at least eight matches for allegedly trying to stick his finger up an opponent’s bum.

The Toulouse half-back was put on report for the incident involving Warrington’s Oliver Holmes during last Thursday’s 32-18 defeat.

Now Rugby Football League chiefs have walloped the Australian with the most severe Grade F charge which starts at an eight-match suspension and is open ended, for what is termed ‘other contrary behaviour.’

However, details on his record state it is for ‘inappropriate contact,’ and SunSport understands it is for trying to insert his digit where it was not wanted.

Four or more games handed down at a disciplinary hearing tonight will rule him out of the remainder of Olympique’s battle to beat the drop from Super League.

Any more will carry over into next season, when Toulouse may be in the Championship after just one year.

Norman, 31, was caught on camera reaching between Holmes’ legs as he made a challenge and was placed on report by referee Chris Kendall.

Now the match review panel has deemed it worthy of the most serious of charges.

Castleford’s Kenny Edwards received a 10-game suspension for doing the same to Catalans’ Sam Kasiano last year during his time at Huddersfield,

The panel was busy as no fewer than 12 other players were also handed bans.
