Halifax have distanced themselves from the news yesterday that nine MP’s are pushing for their inclusion in Super League.
A statement said: “Halifax RLFC wish to distance themselves from Thursday’s Early Day Motion put forward in the House of Commons by nine Labour MPs. The motion (number 1387) asked the House to urge the RFL to review its current franchise policy and allow Halifax to enter Super League for the beginning of the 2010 season.
“The club had no knowledge of this motion until several members of the media contacted the club on Thursday afternoon seeking a response. The club is disappointed with the actions of the MPs, which has caused considerable embarrassment to the club.
“Halifax RLFC remain committed to securing a place in Super League for 2012, and will continue to execute its business plan in the right and proper manner to achieve that target, adhering to the RFL’s rules and procedures as accepted by all member clubs.”
