Smoten has brought to management's attention that he played Jamie Cripps in the clash against Alber_Goodthur, which unfortunately was not picked up at the time.
Smoten should not have named Cripps as he is currently on his LTI list, and still has another 5 weeks to serve before he could be available for selection again.
After looking into the immediate forward options that would've played in Cripps's spot, Smoten has actually cost himself points by playing Cripps (46pts) vs. Josh Walker (51) or Bailey Dale (67). Due to this we're going to let the scores stand and Smoten will not receive any further punishment.
Whilst we thank Smoten for his honesty, we're going to put measures into place so this doesn't happen again.
For a first offence, if anybody plays somebody on LTI they will receive the lowest score from the LTI player and any other bench options that are eligible to play in the LTI's position.
A secondary offence will result in a team receiving 0 for the LTI player.
