I appreciate the details will probably have to remain confidential but it does raise suspiscion of both Thaler and the RFL.

Glad he's been cleared but hope the RFL do things better in the future.

Not really. Plenty of people are guilty of things in life but get away with it.

Glad he will be back though. When of the better refs

Can’t really be bothered with this. Not guilty means that on the evidence the person has not been found guilty of what they were accused of. So on the evidence he’s not guilty even if there’s further evidence out there that would have proved that he did it. That how the English legal system works.

You can still be guilty of something even if found not guilty though is all I'm saying.
I egged an house when I was a kid and the man dragged me to the police station. I told the police it wasn't me and I was walking passed some lads who did it. They let me go. Couldn't prove it. But I did it.
