ARLC approve no-fault stand down rule

The ARL Commission has voted unanimously in favour of the new no-fault stand down rule, which will take effect on Monday night.

The new rule – which makes no judgement on a player’s case while standing them down from the game if they are charged with an offence carrying an 11 year maximum jail sentence – means Jack de Belin is now officially stood down from the game.

The commission met on Monday afternoon to confirm the full extent of the new law change.

A Federal Court judge ruled last Thursday the NRL did not yet have the power to stand the star St George Illawara forward down as they had not tendered the necessary paperwork.
