THE Jorge Taufua ban saga continues, with Bulls to appeal the six-game ban he received at an RFL tribunal earlier this week.

There will be an appeal hearing next Tuesday, with Bradford looking to defend Taufua once again, and overturn the suspension that currently sees him ruled out until the end of the Betfred Championship season.

Both the player and club will attend the hearing, with Bulls CEO Jason Hirst saying: "With regard to Jorge Taufua's recent six match ban, the player and club will attend an appeal hearing on Tuesday, August 22.

The club will not be making any further comment until after the hearing."

Taufua was initially handed down a Grade F biting charge from the RFL following an incident in the defeat to Barrow on Monday, July 31.

He was available to play in Bulls' following game, scoring in a fine win at Batley, before that tribunal on Monday.

Though his charge was downgraded to Grade E contrary behaviour, the winger was still handed a six-game ban.

Interim head coach Lee Greenwood said this week the club would have to weigh up whether to appeal the tribunal decision, and they have now chosen to do so.
