You have made it quite clear that you know nothing of the evidence submitted in the appeal, none of us do. For all we know Batley may have a dossier 6" thick which shows thousands of incidents of RFL incompetence. It may bring the whole game crashing down if the truth comes out? We may now have the RFL in our pockets and the refs might help us all the way to Grandfinal victory? 99% of what is being spouted by quite rightly angry opposition fans is guess work. All we know as facts are that an apeal case was heard and the points deductions overturned. Anything else is guesswork, moan all you like but there is a reason for the turnaround,which we don't know the ins and outs of and in this case it's not because we are one of the big boys, an RFL favourite who always lands on their feet. Keighley are well within their rights to go after the RFL but any club in our position would be happy with the results we've had this last 2 weeks both on and off the pitch.
I'm afraid I have no idea. No details are ever published. I don't know who was on the original panel or the appeals panel. The "fresh evidence" presented to the appeals panel has not been published. It shouldn't have been admitted anyway. As it related to 2013, it should have been submitted to the original tribunal or not at all.
