Lynne Curran, you wouldnt happen to be a lawyer who supports Pt Chev? Glad the ARL arent bogged down in legal mumbo jumbo and did what was right in the spirit of the game, something Pt. Chev are obviously missing.

The statement that by not fielding their best available players Pt Chev "therefore deliberately influenced the outcome of the competition" was NOT proven. The report of the Independent Panel clearly states that the allegation that effectively amounts to rigging "is extremely serious and requires a high standard of proof. The committee is not satisfied that this has been proved" and the allegation was dismissed accordingly.
They were ONLY found guilty of not fielding the best team possible. Cameron MacGregor's statement is therefore is contradictory to the ruling. If ARL are NOT saying that "clubs can't stand down players and give them a rest when they want to" then what does "fielding the best team possible" actually mean? The offense is general. It either applies or it doesn't. The "magnitude" isn't specified in whatever "rule" has been broken so all Premier teams should be guilty. Who holds ARL accountable for making up these rules as it suits them?

This club was wrong in what it did. Surely the managerment and coaching staff should be held accountable .... Whatever name you want to put to it... It still means the same .....CHEATING !
