Green 'willing to continue fighting' over Bradford Bulls points deduction
BULLS chairman Marc Green says he will make a decision next week on whether to take further legal action against the club’s six-point penalty.
Green has already seen his appeal to win back the points fail after an independent Sporting Sanctions Appeal Panel upheld the punishment last week.
But Green is still considering pursuing the matter in the High Court and will make a call after tomorrow’s game with Hull KR.
He said: “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.
“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.
“If, however, we are relegated, we will put every effort into returning in the quickest time possible. The club will operate a full-time first team and there will be no redundancies as a result of relegation, in any department.”
