First published in Sport

An independent Sporting Sanctions Appeals Panel has upheld the six-point deduction handed down to Bradford Bulls by the RFL Board of Directors as a penalty for entering into administration in January 2014.

RFL Chief Operating Officer Ralph Rimmer said: “The RFL accepts the decision of the Sporting Sanctions Appeals Panel and would like to place on record its thanks to the panel members for their professional and thorough approach.

“The unique nature of this panel, and the forensic nature of the investigations that have taken place, have made for a very complicated process which is now at a conclusion.

“The time has now come to move on and put this chapter in the history of Bradford Bulls behind the sport.

"Bradford Bulls chairman Marc Green and his fellow directors have acted in a proper and dignified manner throughout this process and their continuing commitment will ensure the club’s future success."

The independent Sporting Sanctions Appeals Panel will hand down a full written judgement within the next 14 days.
