Victory by Blue Bulls rugby union keeps the carlton ball rolling
GMI's Mr Derik de Beer secured victory for the Blue Bulls Rugby Union in an urgent application brought by the Naka Bulls Rugby Club to halt the semi – final of the Carlton Rugby League, which is scheduled to take place on 15 August 2015.
The Naka Bulls brought an urgent application requesting the court to condone their non-compliance with the Premier League Rules that require them to submit information relating to their players for each game, before commencement of the game. Their failure to comply resulted in the other team being awarded 40 points, which in turn prevented the Naka Bulls from advancing to the semi-finals. The Naka Bulls requested that this decision be reviewed and that the semi-final of the Carlton League be halted.
Their urgent application, which was heard in the North Gauteng High Court on 13 August 2015 was dismissed with costs including the costs of 2 counsel.
