RUGBY: Former Bath and Australia rugball player Justin Harrison has been suspended for a little a bit of the ol’ drugs. The scamp.
Harrison has received an eight-month ban after admitting to taking three illegal substances. He was also heard saying “class A, it’s OK, everyone’s doing it” near Bath Academy players. Which means he’s either an idiot or a comedian.
Partying in London to celebrate the end of the season, Harrison was asked by someone in a pub in Shepherd’s Bush whether he would like some ‘gear’.
Harrison took this chap up on his offer and then rounded the night off by getting wasted and getting into a scrap with a Harlequins player at a Pitcher and Piano pub. Gent.
He was caught by his club, has subsequently resigned. He’s also had his right to work in the UK taken away as well.
“I wish to express my acceptance of my suspension by the RFU,” read a statement issued by Harrison.
“I deeply regret the incidents of Sunday, May 10, 2009 and the subsequent damage to Bath and the game itself.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to remain involved in the game and I fully intend to use my own experiences to educate younger players
GOLF Poor old Tom Watson. Well, maybe he’s not poor, but he’s definitely an old bastard.

He represents both fighters, so he’s laughing all the way to the bank.
