Sale Sharks prop Jake Pope has been banned for six months after testing positive for cocaine for a second time.

Pope, 21, becomes the first player to be found guilty of twice breaching the Rugby Football Union’s illicit drugs policy.

He is banned from 4 December 2018, the date of his provisional suspension, until 4 June 2019.

Pope admitted a first offence after a positive test in September 2017, for which he was fined £1,000.
