No verdict in Mike Tindall hearing
Thursday 24 November 2011
The Rugby Football Union have moved Mike Tindall's appeal hearing to a secret
location away from Twickenham and said there will be no verdict announced today.
Tindall is appealing against the RFU's decision to fine him £25,000 for his conduct relating to a drunken night out in Queenstown during the World Cup.
The 33-year-old was also dropped from the England squad following an RFU investigation, conducted by elite rugby director Rob Andrew and legal officer Karena Vleck.
Tindall was among the group of players who went out for drinks after being given the night off and he was captured on CCTV footage from the Altitude Bar in conversation with a woman.
The Gloucester centre later issued an apology for misleading the England management over his movements that night, having initially claimed he did not go on to another bar.
The Rugby Players' Association described Tindall's fine, which was handed down by the RFU as "extraordinary" and "unprecendented".
Tindall's appeal is being heard by the RFU's acting chief executive Martyn Thomas.
