As the highest club relegated we would replace Sheffield. After all if we do get relegated it was Sheffield who did the wingeing about Fairbanks. I am sure the Sheffield chairman and Aston would like that ( not ).
I didn't wish to dignify this thread with a response but,as you have continued it,I may as well ask where the information came from which allows you to state that it was Sheffield who did the 'whinging'?
Did they also 'whinge' about Doncaster,and err in a suggestion about Dewsbury?
I have read tweets from a newspaper reporter with an interest in a Cumbrian club before the RFL made their announcement about the investigation,and on forums about the Workington fan who pointed out the ruling,and about clubs being reminded by email with regard to the DR regulations.
It must only be the cost because it seems rare for individuals to make use of the libel laws in this country?
Perhaps the transparent,accountable,fair and equitable RFL will make public how they came to be made aware of the possible error(s) on Thursday.
