Bulls win appeal

Bradford Bulls have successfully appealed their RFL official warning for prejudicial conduct, relating to incidents at their fixture with Leigh in February.

The warning was handed down in April, and related to the behviour of some members of the club at the game.

The Bulls have also had a fine for having too many players on the pitch against Dewsbury halved.

An RFL statement reads:

“The appeals tribunal ruled that they were not comfortably satisfied that the charges brought against Bradford could be proved.

“The appeals tribunal also halved a £2,000 fine imposed on Bradford Bulls for having 14 players on the pitch during a Championship fixture against Dewsbury Rams played on June 14.

“The tribunal accepted that the offence was serious but felt that in the circumstances a fine of £1,000 was more appropriate for a Championship club.”

The Bulls are obviously pleased about the tribunal’s decision.

“The club was always confident that the Independent Appeals Panel would arrive at an amicable decision,” said a Bulls spokesperson.

“We would like to thank everyone involved in the process.”
