The Grenoble rugby club, currently second in Pro D2, was penalized on Monday, November 21, with a withdrawal of five points, two of which were suspended, and a fine of 20,000 euros.
Administrative halt for Grenoble in its crazy sports series. Currently second in Pro D2 and in vain since mid-October, the FCG was sanctioned, this Monday, November 21, with a withdrawal of five points, two of which were suspended, and a fine of 20,000 euros.
This sanction pronounced by the financial policeman of the National Rugby League (LNR) is based on the “non-compliance with the regulatory provisions and decisions of the CCCP (Professional Championship Control Commission, editor’s note)“.
Contacted this Monday afternoon, the Grenoble club has indicated that it will not communicate for the moment. In its decision, the LNR also penalized the Carcassonne club. The Languedoc club, for its part, saw itself imposed a suspended suspension of three points and a fine of 20,000 euros, including 13,000 suspended, for the same reason, as well as a “inconsistency and/or implausibility of the initial and/or updated budget”.
The two clubs have a period of seven days to appeal this decision, specifies the LNR in its press release.
