Rugby League star Ben Cockayne faces probe over alleged racist comments on Facebook (UK)

A big money rugby league star was being investigated last night after racist comments appeared on his and a mate’s Facebook pages.

Super League ace Ben Cockayne, 27, allegedly posted “p*** c***” on the site earlier this week.

It is thought the Hull KR fullback wrote on a pal’s profile page: “u owe me a quid an the p*** c*** that has got my wallet in his car owes me about 100”. It is believed Cockayne was referring to a wallet which he had lost in a taxi.

But 53 minutes later Cockayne, who was given a 12-month suspended sentence in 2009 for an assault, wrote on Facebook: “Found it :) thank f***”.

Last night Cockayne’s Facebook profile was removed within hours of the Mirror contacting his club and the Rugby ­Football League. A Hull KR spokesman said: “The club will be carrying out a full internal investigation into comments allegedly made on a website by Ben Cockayne. Nobody will be commenting further until that has concluded.”

The Rugby Football League, which has a Kick Racism Into Touch campaign, said: “We will be speaking to Hull KR about a potential social media matter.”
