Bradford Bulls may go to High Court

by: Aaron Bower, June 24, 2014, 4:00 pm

The drama surrounding the decision to dock Bradford Bulls six competition points may not be over yet, as chairman Marc Green is pondering the possibility of heading to the High Court to fight their case.

Green said the club have received positive legal advice and would decide in the next 24 hours whether to continue their fight, even though it would cost “tens of thousands of pounds”.

“We’ve had conversations with barristers and we are 100 per cent convinced High Court action will result in success,” Green said. “If we believe getting the points back will benefit the club, then we’ll do it.

“There is a great expense to doing it. It’s not a five hundred quid fee to go into court. It’s going to cost many tens of thousands of pounds and, if we don’t believe getting the points back would materially benefit the club, then the money is better off spent elsewhere.

“That decision will be made in the next 24 hours, by close of play tomorrow, once we’ve had chance to sit down and digest the barrister’s comments and Jimmy’s had a chance to meet the players.”
