2-Aug-16 Committee meeting - 7:30 @ WPRC - Minutes 1608
14-Jul-16 The long running saga of Blades v Crusaders has now been finalised. A very full committee of 8 peers considered a detailed adjudication using current performance percentages as early as April. Only clear wins were awarded to each team and this left the finishing position of the division on a knife edge.  The process of adjudication requires that the option to replay cannot be pursued by either team if they do not like the result of the adjudication. Accordingly the committee withheld the adjudication and firmly instructed the game to be rearranged. Despite the committee's best endeavours Crusaders resisted all attempts to persuade them to play the game. This was in fact in their own best interest but it was not appropriate for that information or the score to be released. Crusaders resigned from the league and the committee have reluctantly accepted that the match will never be played so the adjudicated result has now been adopted and published with the other league results.
The committee regrets the painful outcome but the options were very carefully considered, fair to all parties and the committee would still deal with these events in the same way. Members should appreciate that the committee has no reason to favour any one team or individual over any other. Some members devote a lot of their own personal time and effort in running the league and do not wish to be involved in such tedious disputes. The league rules have been extended and amplified as discussed at AGM to make the process clearer and avoid a similar situation occurring in future.
