The careers of St George Illawarra star forward Jack de Belin and ARL Commission chairman Peter Beattie will be on the line in the Federal Court this afternoon.

Justice Melissa Perry will at 4pm today hand down her judgement into de Belin's case against the NRL and ARL Commission.

De Belin is challenging the game's no fault stand down policy after he became the first player sidelined as a result of the controversial rules which were rubber-stamped in March.

Under the rules, the game can stand down any player charged with a serious crime which carries a jail term of 11 years or more.

St George Illawarra back-rower Jack de Belin ' s NRL playing future is up in the air after he lost his bid to be reinstated in the Federal Court .

St George Illawarra say Jack de Belin is considering appealing a legal setback in the Federal Court which saw his bid for reinstatement to the NRL fail.

Incumbent NSW Origin lock de Belin was stood down after he was charged with the aggravated sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman in a Wollongong unit.

He has pleaded not guilty.

De Belin sued the NRL arguing the rules were unconscionable, represent a restraint of trade, constitute unlawful interference with his contract and that the governing body was misleading in their conduct.

Should he be successful, it could open the door for him to make his return to the playing field against Newcastle in Mudgee on Sunday.

However, a more likely return date would be the following week against Cronulla at Wollongong's WIN Stadium.

If he is successful, it's understood the NRL would seek to re-draft the rules to comply with Justice Perry's ruling.

Telstra payphones headed to Federal Court

Telstra payphones headed to Federal Court The Federal Court is set to answer whether slapping large digital screens on the back of payphones is "low impact" after Telstra was accused of a "cash grab". Australia's biggest telco is battling several councils across the country after its first major redesign of the payphone booth in more than three decades. Councils say Telstra is using loopholes to bypass planning laws and put 75-inch (190.5cm) digital screens run by outdoor advertising giant JCDecaux on the back of the booths. Telstra can install "low impact" equipment without planning approval and believes installing or upgrading payphones fits this rule.

It is possible that if the Federal Court finds the rules illegal on certain grounds, the NRL could re-draft them to adhere.

Beattie has previously acknowledged that his tenure is on the line after he spearheaded the introduction of the rules.

Over a four-day court hearing last month, the Federal Court was told that the game's broadcasters Fox Sports and Channel Nine had warned the NRL their next TV rights deal would plummet in value if players like de Belin were allowed to continue playing while they had serious criminal charges hanging over their heads.

Melbourne Storm chairman Bart Campbell said the game's "summer from hell" had cost the club $500,000 in lost sponsorship after potential backers had pulled out of deals stating they couldn't be involved in rugby league given it's stream of ugly headlines over the summer.

If the NRL is successful, it could have dire consequences for de Belin's career.
