Welsh Rugby Union CEO Martyn Phillips and head coach Warren Gatland fronted up to the media at their hotel in Japan to address Howley’s recent removal from the setup.

And it has emerged that a betting company's integrity team contacted the WRU last Wednesday (September 11) with information that prompted Phillips to fly out to Japan to confront Howley with the claims.

Before CEO Phillips and WRU Operations Manager Julie Paterson flew out to Kitakyushu, where Wales are currently based, they informed World Rugby of the potential breach and began formal proceedings.

In an opening statement from Phillips before the press conference began on Wednesday, he explained the timeline of events.

“I’m going to tell you as much as I can but we are in a formal process and there are certain things I can’t disclose,” said Phillips.

“We were contacted on Wednesday of last week informally to suggest there was a potential breach of regulation 6, which you’ll now be familiar with.

“We were then contacted formally with further information on Friday evening. We took Saturday to digest that information.

“We reached the decision on Saturday that we were best-placed to come out to Japan.

“At that point we informed World Rugby that there was a potential breach and we would be seeking face to face time with Rob to get his perspective.

Unfortunately gambling is rammed down the throat of most sports enthusiasts nowadays. You cannot not watch a sporting event without some betting company splattered all over it. Gambling is gambling, in any form. We are running a sweep stake at our place, we have all put a tenner in, and we have put all the teams into an envelope, we are going to open them in the club on the semi finals, we all do it, everywhere, how many people pay a quid, every 6N game, and pick a player out of the pint glass for 1st try scorer ?

In the same way that cigarette advertising has been banned in professional sport likewise it would be great in my opinion that gambling was treated similarly.

It annoys the hell out of me the sheer quantity of gambling website pop up adverts we get online while trying to read articles about sport.

Gambling is any easy road to go down, without even knowing how much trouble you are in. I have seen people bet their entire wages away playing brag/nap/poker.

I have seen it start off, 5p and 10p, then escolate to 50p and £1, then £1 and £2 and so on... I have seen people playing £10 and £20. It is very scary.

Our club has banned playing cards for money, if they see you, they will chuck you out. But there are fruit machines everywhere, the Super 6 is advertised on the notice boards, people are always on their phones placing bets as the football or rugby is on.

When you think about it, it is everywhere, you cannot go anywhere without seeing gambling advertised, it seems to go hand in hand with sport now.

So far we haven’t seen anything other than Howley is assisting in an investigation. There are no accusations as far as I have read implementing him in gambling that is just a natural assumption due to the nature of the stories in the press.

If this were true, it surely shouldn't be that surprising? Rob Howley was backs coach - so did that mean he advised on what to back?

Gambling advertising should be banned, as should booze advertising in my opinion.

Gambling shouldn’t even be referred to as "gambling" in my view. The definition of a gamble is a "chance" and these days everything is so heavily stacked in favour of the bookie that you may as well just hand them your money for giggles.

I saw a documentary on the BBC a month back where a boy was trying to be a pro gambler for a month and make money. He did all sorts of types of gambling, including manging to bet on things before a website had been updated so it was a guaranteed win. All that happened is any time he started to make money, the bookie would close his account down.

Remember, if you win with a bet, you are not taking money from the bookie, you are simply taking a share of the money that the bookie has taken off of some poor punter that lost.

Bookies are just a form of mathematically gifted loan sharks!

Highly unlikely Wales' backs coach would be sent home to investigate a betting scandal if he wasnt front and centre of the scandal himself.

Was there ever a rift between him and Webb? Since I read that he 'put on a bet on Webb not making the world cup squad' Laugh I had a sense of deja vu. Now Gatland can appeal to the WRU as this is surely good enough reason to call up Rhys Webb...

Yes, and I'm not comfortable with it either. There was a time one or two seasons ago when a lot of rugby podcasts suddenly got betting sponsorship. I'm glad that didn't catch on. It's bad enough hearing Ray Winstone's voice as much as we do but I understand it's worse in Australia. Bookie Tom Waterhouse used to appear on NRL TV coverage.

I thought the only such rift was between Howley and Dwayne Peel at the start of this decade.

About the only live TV I watch is sport. This does mean that I see rather a lot of Gambling ads - and it is something that annoys the crap out of me. There are a variety of rules about Gambling adverts in UK: https://www.asa.org.uk/topic/gambling.html

I am certainly not comfortable that 10 (of 20) Premier League Football Clubs have gambling firms as their shirt sponsors.

Lee Byrne doesn't like Howley. Said in his book, he was a bully.

Possibly, and the Webb-rift I'm thinking of could have been between him and Tandy. The former Ospreys coach fell out with a few players before getting the chop.

Fair point made in Planet Rugby...
‘The details are simply not known. But that the allegations are serious enough, that after Howley’s full cooperation the WRU felt it necessary to send him home and call for an independent disciplinary panel rather than an internal one, that his former colleagues are talking about mental support rather than patience, all lends itself to the feeling that Howley’s transgression might have been grave indeed.’

It’s an English plot. After the game in Cardiff, he bumped in to Eddie Jones in the Tunnel.

Eddie said “ if you play like that at the World Cup your going out in the quarter finals.”

Rob said “Wanna bet?”

Eddie reported him to the IRB ethics

Last time I was back I stayed with my Stepdad for the first time since my mum had died and he'd got into the habit of leaving the tv on in the background even when not watching (for noise/ company I guess). I was really shocked at the sheer volume of betting ads, and also the number of different companies. Not just during sporting events either.

Maggie Alphonsi says the women have been warned for years about betting. That means there's virtually no chance that anyone at the top level of the professional game was unaware of the World Rugby ban.

Before the 2014 Women’s World Cup, I remember all teams were spoken to by a World Rugby official about the off-field rules they must abide by.

The first item on that list was very simple: under no circumstances can you, or anyone close to you, bet on rugby. The reason was very simple – as players we are privy to confidential information and it is illegal to use that to our own gain.

The impression from the welsh squad is one of compassion not anger and support for a part of their team who is not well. All the words regarding Rob Howley’s departure from their environment are of support.

If you understand addiction as an illness then Maggie Alphonsi’s words have no connection whatsoever. It might be clear as day that betting on rugby when you are within the inner echelons is prohibited, this doesn’t matter a jot if you have a dependence on gambling.

I said on the other thread that I don't want to jump to any conclusions about addiction. There are obviously hints but we simply don't know enough at this stage.

Alphonsi's comments are relevant because some former pros seemed surprised that there was a ban on rugby betting, which raised questions about whether there might have been an unknowing breach. Nicky Robinson on BBC Wales suggested those old players just aren't up-to-date with current practice, saying that everyone in the professional game would be aware of the ban.

Hatley has basically echoed this to say everyone knew of the rules around this. But we're unlikely to find out any details for a while.

You only have to look at comments sections across the interweb to see how many people (not current rugby players I hasten to add) seem to think that a breach would have to be either betting against Wales or using inside knowledge. As we have discussed no betting of any kind is allowed. That has been clear ever since Phil Blake was banned for betting on Leicester Tigers to win games.

Just heard some juicy gossip regarding this, from an ex colleague of Rob Howley, I am not putting on here, but if anybody wants to PM me feel free. Its all allegedly said mind, but if it is true, then Rob Howley is in big, big trouble.

I cannot put it on here as too many people would take that chance to report me and try and get me banned. Such is this place nowadays. Rolling Eyes

No-one can put it on here because even if they use the word allegedly, if it is not in the mainstream press they are opening up the risk of falling foul of libel laws.

Hardly. Howley sent home by employer; evidently there is a prima facie case to answer QED Howley has been involved in gambling. Speculation by a private citizen on a public forum with membership criteria about a rugby coach gambling following the biggest news story in rugby since Folau is hardly going to invite assertions of libel.

People have been quoting the problem bet, and the amount all over the internet - and they keep getting taken down by moderators.

Until the specifics are in general circulation in the mainstream media any rumours should be left off the board. This instruction is not specific to a single poster with juicy gossip, it is to all. So people can discuss what is public knowledge, but not bring up any, as yet, unfounded allegations.

I cannot put it on here as too many people would take that chance to report me and try and get me banned. Such is this place nowadays. Rolling Eyes
