Those that think the RFL are not fit for purpose have just been handed more ammunition. The appointment of Liam Moore as GF referee after his recent gaffes is another strange decision.

So you get a ban of two games, appeal and get a £500 fine added to the ban then appeal again and now it’s ruled you did nothing wrong even though the second appeal panel agrees he twisted the players arm.

The disciplinary panel now have no credibility and leave themselves open to accusations of corruption.

If it was against us I’d have a problem but let’s be fair saints win without Knowles, that Leeds team is absolutely dreadful. The worst Leeds team to ever grace a grand final. I think Saturday could be a bit of a bashing

The worst part of all this is, its no longer a surprise when controversial things happen around the RFL & the MRP.

Absolute shambles and an embarrassment to be involved with at times.

IMG have a lot of work cut out or this sport is going to die

What a fecking joke!!

The RFL the MRP are making this sport a fecking laughing stock 🤬
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

You are not kidding. Why are they even allowed to appeal twice FFS?

The original match review panel and the first appeal panel who increased the sanction have now been deemed incompetent by the final appeal panel.

Do the RFL seriously not know how stupid this makes them look?

Can't disagree with anything you've said other than the next chicken wing tackle will have to be let off if they're to have any shred of credibility left.

Disgusting it really is
