Marwan Koukash backs Bradford Bulls High Court challenge

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Marwan Koukash Marwan Koukash

Salford chairman Marwan Koukash has backed the Bulls' decision to launch a High Court bid to win back their docked points, even though his club could be dragged into the Super League relegation battle if they are successful.

The Bulls had six points deducted for going into administration and are currently nine behind 12th-placed Salford with 10 matches left of the regular season.

"I am fully supportive of Marc Green in going to the High Court, even if it is at our expense," said Koukash, whose wife Mandy made an unsuccessful attempt to buy Bradford from the administrator in April.

"I hope for their sake, they get their points back if they are entitled to them. You can't allow an injustice to occur.

"It's about time we found out what's going on."

A spokesman for the RFL said the governing body was not in a position to issue a statement while Wakefield chairman Michael Carter, who said earlier this year he would be forced to consider his future in the game if Bradford won the points back, declined to comment.

No smoke without fire. Seems Mr K wants answers as well over the whole debacle. Agree a decent chap who would put his own club at risk to get the truth. Mr Carter, do not comment, the High Court wont listen to any of your idle threats. A man who helped destroy our team, took 2 of our best players to weaken us, used them to gain an advantage and now has offloaded 1 to the championship. cant fault him tactically but he should keep his thoughts to himself when it doesnt concern him!! anyway I hope mrs K comes back in as an investor with Green and the bulls bounce straight back.

He wants to see change at the RFL. He's probably paying the bill for the Bulls High Court Battle
