When it comes down to the RFL that old saying "you should always expect the unexpected" was never truer.
Batley's appeal was centred around the fact that they didn't know about this 3 game rule and it seems to me that they have upturned every stone to find that Haven broke the same rule last year and didn't get punished. As they haven't punished any teams either last year or this then it would be very difficult for them to punish another team if they now broke the same rule this season.
It's ironic though that the one coach that shouted loudest about the perceived miscarriage of justice just happened to be coach of the team that broke the rule last year and got away with it!!! As they say "touche".
