Tom Arscott has come under fire from Sale Sharks and the RFU in recent weeks after accusations of him leaking information to his former club Bristol prior to the teams meeting on new years day. The 28 year old has now got even more problems, as Sale have now terminated his contract down to the matter.
This is further swaying the probable out come of the investigation, towards Arscott and Bristol are found guilty. Sale would definitely not terminate a contract unless they were sure their was foul play on the player’s behalf.
Sale came out with only a brief comment on their website, stating only the basics; “Sale Sharks have today terminated the contract of Tom Arscott with immediate effect following a disciplinary investigation and hearing. No further comment will be made in accordance with the club’s disciplinary procedure.” This sudden ending of the contract will see Arscott searching for another team immediately; that’s if anyone will have him after his poor show of loyalty.
Could this mean that he could have his eyes set on a move back to Bristol? It seems possible.
