Justin Harrison apologises for racial slur

Australia and Waratahs lock Justin Harrison has admitted racially abusing Cats winger Chumani Booi in a Super 12 match last weekend.

Harrison issued a statement apologising for his actions after the Cats lodged a complaint over the incident, believing the slur was made Nathan Grey.

Harrison said in his statement.

I’m extremely disappointed for any grief and hurt that I have caused Chumani Booi over a comment I made during the match, it happened in …a moment of frustration but it’s certainly no excuse.

I offer a public apology to Chumani, the Cats, Nathan Grey, my team mates and the community for what I said. I’m also disappointed that Nathan’s name has been dragged through the press when he is innocent.
