NHRU ANNOUNCEMENT – 29 APRIL 2016
The NHRU has received appeal correspondences overnight from Merewether Carlton and Maitland in regards to the severity of the sanctions applied in regards to the playing of unregistered players during Premier Round 3.
The Board applied the sanctions of fines, loss of competition points and a Club suspension for one round.
The Board has resolved that the ‘Club suspension element’ of the sanction imposed by the NHRU, in the interests of procedural fairness, be suspended until the matter can be heard at a Judiciary Hearing to be scheduled as soon as practicable. Therefore, the full Round 4 of Premier Rugby will be played this weekend.
