Former Saints star Ben Barba has been handed a lifetime ban by the NRL

Sky Sports’ Brian Carney has questioned the “mechanics” behind the National Rugby League’s decision to hand former Super League star Ben Barba a lifetime ban.

Barba, the reigning Man of Steel, has been deregistered by the NRL after the game’s integrity unit viewed CCTV footage of an alleged assault on his partner.

The 29-year-old former St Helens full-back, who was the leading try-scorer in Super League in 2018, was sacked by North Queensland Cowboys without playing a game following the alleged incident outside a Townsville casino.
