Bradford Bulls to decide on further action next week

Bradford Bulls chairman Marc Green has said in a statement that the club will decide whether to take further action regarding the decision by an Independent Sporting Panel to uphold their six-point deduction within the next week.

The Bulls were informed last week they would not be getting any points back after their entry into administration earlier this year – and they currently sit eight points from safety. However, Green has insisted that he is prepared to continue fighting for the Bulls to ensure the right decision is made.

“In respect of the points deduction, despite this being unpopular with others in the game, the club will be making a decision next week as to whether to take matters to the High Court. While I appreciate the comments made suggesting we should accept our medicine and move on, I can only acquiesce to such thought process if I am satisfied the original decision was correct,” he said.

“Just because a doctor provides a diagnosis, it does not mean you are not entitled to a second opinion. The issues surrounding the points deduction and our appeal were and remain extremely complex.

“However, we believe the decision reached by the Sporting Sanctions Appeals Panel was not only flawed but completely wrong and, as a result, I am willing to continue fighting the fight for this great club.”
