Leeds Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington has expressed his disappointment at a ruling that means Kylie Leuluai will be unable to play for Hunslet Hawks in the Championship this weekend as part of the game's dual registration process.
Commenting on the ruling, Hetherington said, "This decision is purely down to bureaucracy and red tape and it is so disappointing that Rugby League players are treated differently to other professional sportsmen and how little influence our governing body seem to have compared to other sports."
