I’ve never seen a team appeal the MRP a second time, are you obviously allowed to do that? All I’m going to say on the matter is you wonder why the sport is where it is within the UK when corruption is occurring right under our noses, with clearly no F’s given.

I'm no lover of Leeds but this decision is absolutely pathetic, so coupled with the fact that Saints have more than their fair share of whingers amongst their supporters, I hope Leeds hammer them.

I guess the message is do anything you want if the next game is a final.

How on earth do the MRP make a decision, uphold it on appeal and then cave in at a 2nd appeal?

Surely if ever an appeal was going to be regarded as frivolous it would be appealing an already upheld appeal.

Can't give the link as its on twitter, but Richard Silverwood (one of the better refs) has come out and said its a disgrace.
I quote " Absolute shambles. No wonder the game is on its ar*e,"

In a microcosm we see exactly what’s holding back Rugby League in this country and also why there’s little hope that it will recover from the recession it’s in. IMG or not!

Sts appeal is predictable but morally abhorrent, it says we will ignore the conduct of our player because we want to play him the next match. It also says we will put our welfare above that of the game no matter how amateurish and small it makes the the whole sport look.

The Governing Body, the RFL looks weak and perhaps corrupt in the face of one of the sports big clubs. No surprise there, no matter how they try to rationalise and explain their many illogical decisions that favour the big clubs.

The truth is that the powerful clubs run the game for their benefit often at the expense of the integrity of the sport, the smaller clubs and the health of the lower divisions. Once or twice is perhaps sustainable or can be absorbed even by a weak sport like Rugby League but many many cases, not just disciplinery matters, over decades has brought the sport to its knees.

Can the panel be cited for bringing the game into disrepute?

Although many people point the finger at clubs like Trinity for holding the game back, there is no doubt whatsoever that it's the big 5 clubs that control the sport and they can pretty much do what the hell they want, knowing that when push comes to shove, they will get their own way.
This decision is just the latest example of the RFL buckling or, not being up to the task.
Can you imagine this sort of thing in Union ??
The big 4 having "better advice" than the governing body should NEVER be possible.
Once again RL is a laughingstock.
