The panel found that:
1. Mr Bandy, by nature of his evidence at the original Tribunal had a conversation with Umpire Locyker and Lockyer advised him he was to be reported.
2. The Club was notified of the report and relevant charges within twenty fours hours of the report being lodged.
3. It found that it was reasonable in the circumstances that By Law 63.a.v. was invoked by Umpire Lockyer because he was uncomfortable in returning to the CBC change room.
