Ben Barba was sacked by the North Queensland Cowboys after a ‘significant breach of the terms of his contract’

Reigning Man of Steel Ben Barba will not be welcome back in Super League if he is banned by the NRL, the Rugby Football League has warned.

The 29-year-old former St Helens full-back, who was the leading try-scorer in Super League in 2018, was sacked by his new club, North Queensland Cowboys, without playing a game over an alleged assault on his partner outside a Townsville casino.

The incident is being investigated by Queensland police and Barba looks likely to be banned for life by the NRL.
