Thaler cleared to return

Super League referee Ben Thaler has been cleared to return to the game when it resumes by the RFL following an investigation.

Thaler was suspended pending an official investigation a month ago, but the governing body have now determined he has no case to answer.

He said in a statement: “I’m happy to have been exonerated from any of the allegations made against me, with the process being completed, no adverse findings made and my suspension therefore having been immediately lifted.

“I’d like to put it all behind me now and concentrate on refereeing, whenever games restart.

“I would like to thank my family and friends for their encouragement and support during such a difficult time. Their support and the messages of support I have had from the wider game has been overwhelming.”
