Thank you, thank you, thank you. Can you all now pipe down whilst I explain how the process works
I have used the RFU's disciplinary process manual as the basis of how the citing process works, given that everyone knows how fair and even handed that works. Copies of the manual can be obtained by leaving a large envelope of used £20 notes in a left luggage locker of my choosing.
After looking through the RFU's manual I have come to the following conclusions :-
even though several EggCuppees have lobbied on Mr poyntonsharks behalf, the excuse that he is on the other side of the world and walking uposide down and is unable to attend the very, very serious citing meeting is contemptible in the extreme.
Recently, the Lake District has opened up an international airport with just this sort of event in mind and for poyntonshark to not avail himself of its services shows that he is not taking the procedings seriously.
As such, under EggCup disciplinary rule 2.232/bgi/ii/£$"!/KendalMintCake/chocolate, the disciplinary meeting will go ahead as follows :-
The meeting will be held at The Sally, Irthington (this being the closest pub to Carlisle Lake District International airport) at 5pm tonight, which will give the condemned man aka poyntonshark plenty of time to attend the hearing.
Chairing the meeting will be His Rt Hon Lordship Sir Flumpty of Westmorland CBE, MBE, OBE, MFI, B&Q, KFC, PCWorld.

Judicial advice will be offered by I. Flogemandhangem, executioner for hire, who is bringing along his portable gallows.
If the soon to be incarcarated mr poyntonshark does not respond to paperwork that was sent to him several seconds ago, by the appointed time that I haven't decided on, then the Court will provide a proxy representative to take his place.
The clock is ticking.
