Classic.Â ;DÂ I've seen better excuses from a 6 yo late with their homework. BULLDOGS officials last night accused an NRL sideline official of misleading conduct in their final bid to regain the two points stripped for fielding an illegal player. The Bulldogs last night argued they had been misled about interchange procedures by an NRL sideline official before kick-off. A club source said trainers were informed players could only be subbed from the tunnel side of the field. "That's why Andrew Ryan was called back on to the field by our NRL trainer (Tony Ayoub)," the source said. "Based on what he had been told earlier, Tony thought Andrew wasn't allowed to go off on the far side of the field."
