A passionate Johnathan Thurston says anyone found guilty of racial abuse should cop an NRL life ban.

The NRL integrity unit is working with the Newcastle club after claims that Dane Gagai was the subject of a racist taunt during their 62-0 loss to Cronulla at Hunter Stadium last Sunday.

"Ban them for life, 100 per cent. We don't need that in society or the game - piss them off," North Queensland and Indigenous All Stars playmaker Johnathan Thurston said on Tuesday.
