NBL Lodges Hodgson Appeal
The NBL is exercising its right to appeal the decision handed down to Perth Wildcats’ centre Matthew Hodgson on Friday evening.
Hodgson was banned for three games, two of which were suspended, for two charges of striking, by an Independent Single Member Tribunal.
The NBL has tabled a written submission to a separate independent legal practitioner who will chair a Full Member Tribunal should the appeal be granted within the next 48 hours.
The tribunal processes are governed by the NBL Tribunal Guidelines but heard by independent legal practitioners and when required, appropriately experienced basketball and sporting experts.
The NBL supports the independent process and looks forward to the next stage of that process commencing.
