Ex-NRL star Dave Taylor cleared of gouging

Catalans Dragons forward Dave Taylor has been cleared of gouging.

The former Queensland and Australia representative was accused of gouging St Helens fullback Jonny Lomax during the Dragons’ 39-16 Super League defeat by Saints at Langtree Park last month.

Taylor denied the grade E offence, which carries a ban of between four and eight matches, when he faced a Rugby Football League independent disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday evening and was found not guilty.

The hearing was due to be heard a week ago but was postponed at the request of the Dragons.
