Following his release by Sale Sharks, Tom Arscott wishes to release the following statement via The RPA:
“While I am extremely disappointed with the outcome of the club’s internal disciplinary hearing, I would like to thank those that have supported me through the process to date.
This has been a very difficult time for myself and my family and I will consult with my advisors before considering my next steps.
In the meantime, I will cooperate fully and willingly with the ongoing RFU investigation and will not be making further comment until this has been concluded.”
The RPA will continue to provide support and legal assistance to Tom. We will be making no further comment until the RFU’s independent investigation has been completed.
