James Cunningham facing racial abuse charge

London hooker James Cunningham could face a suspension of up to eight weeks over a racial abuse allegation.

The allegation was reported in London’s win over Hull KR on September 6 by Hull KR forward Robbie Mulhern on behalf of Mose Masoe.

Cunningham has been charged with Grade F use of unacceptable language, with the case being referred to a tribunal after the match review panel carried out an initial investigation.

It is the most serious offence charge under rule 15.1(f) and it relates to “verbal abuse based on race, colour, religion, gender, sexual preference, disability, national or ethnic origin or any other form of unacceptable behaviour of language”.

Cunningham played in London’s final match of the season a week after the incident, with the Broncos suffering relegation from Super League.
