NRL Issues Indefinite Ban On Two Spectators Racially Abused Greg Inglis

The NRL has today banned two spectators for making offensive remarks towards Greg Inglis during the Rabbitohs loss to the Panthers in round 2 of the 2018 NRL season.

The game's governing body released this statement after careful review. 

The Notices ban the two individuals from attending NRL Events until they can establish that they have taken sufficient steps to address their behaviour, including apologising and completing approved cultural training and education.

Australian Rugby League Indigenous Council chair Linda Burney applauded the NRL's decision. 

"The NRL has taken the right approach by allowing the person responsible to return to Rugby League only after they have undergone appropriate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural training and have issued an apology to Greg and Indigenous community leaders for their comments.
 
"The best way to stop a repetition of this type of behaviour is through education. I am also pleased that senior Indigenous leaders from the game will help decide whether the person responsible is ready to return to games."
