Matt Hart of the Stellar Group, which also represents Ben T'eo, Taulupe Faletau, and Welsh footballer Gareth Bale, amongst others, was found guilty of two breaches – betting on rugby matches and also receiving proceeds, as well as a failure to cooperate with a request for information by the RFU.

Hart, who was discovered to have deposited in excess of £660,000 into a betting account, will be unable to work again in the sport until February 2020.

An independent RFU Disciplinary Panel, chaired by Philip Evans QC, found his betting was 'extensive and frequent' and could be seen as 'very high-stake', revealing that between March and April 2016, Hart placed 10 bets totalling in excess of £138,000 - with the highest individual bet placed worth a whopping £16,234.59.

In a statement, the RFU said the panel found Hart guilty of "betting on the outcome and/or any aspect of an event and receiving part or all of the proceeds of such betting" which was contrary to World Rugby and RFU regulations and also of "non-cooperation" with a request for information from the RFU anti-corruption officer, which was contrary to RFU regulations.

This is why Agents if any type are parasites.

Not that any of his clients will go short during his ban. He’ll have recommended an alternative. They’d do well to seek their own alternatives. Hope his rugby bets were not based on information provided by his clients.

Maybe it's the reason Te'o is staying, he had no agent to approach other clubs for a deal!
