The Reds have revealed that despite Quade Cooper's tweet saying he will not appeal his one match ban the Queensland Rugby Union are still considering whether to appeal.
The Queensland Rugby Union QRU have advised that they are still waiting to receive the SANZAR transcript from Monday's judicial hearing before deciding whether to appeal the decision to ban the player for one match.
The QRU say that they have until 8pm (AEST) Thursday to launch an appeal and exercises its right to fully examine the SANZAR judicial process and outcomes before determining its final position.
Under SANZAR protocols a team can lodge an appeal up to 48 hours after receiving the written judgement and while the Reds received their documentation on Tuesday night they say they are waiting for further information.
The Reds are expected to finalise their team to play the Sharks on Friday.
