John Hopoate has been served a 10-year ban from all involvement in rugby league for contrary conduct offences stemming from a fight in a Manly A-Grade match.

The ban, of which five years have been suspended, will prevent Hopoate from coaching, playing or acting as an official after he pleaded guilty to facts which included striking a player, threatening an opponent after being sent off and abusing officials.

Hopoate claimed he had been the victim of a vile racial slur in the lead up to the fight, which prompted the violent act.
