Bradford Bulls: Date set for points deduction hearing

Bradford Bulls

Bradford Bulls' hearing for their appeal against their six-point deduction for entering administration will be heard on Wednesday, 4 June.

The Bulls were docked the points by the Rugby Football League after entering administration for a second time in two years in January.

The hearing will be conducted by an independent sporting sanctions appeal panel.

Bradford currently sit 13th in Super League, eight points off safety.

The panel could uphold the current decision, decide to deduct the club fewer points or rule that there should be no points deduction at all.

This is the first time a Super League side has lodged an appeal against a points deduction for entering administration.
