Time and again errors in points go uncorrected.

Second Division

On Saturday July 28th, St Helens Town had earned 5 batting points and taken 2 wickets to earn a bowling point but the match was abandoned after 14.4 overs. They were correctly awarded 5 pts.

Had they reached 15 overs, they would have kept the bowling point (Rule 5.5.3, page 48). Since then, they have incorrectly been given the bowling point with the incorrect comment "St Helens entitled additional batting pt as they had 5 + 1 pts as (sic) games abandonment."

http://ldcc.play-cricket.com/website/results/3281377

Rule 5.5.3 states:

Matches abandoned after the start due to weather and/orlight conditions will be regarded as 'no decision'. In 'no decision' matches each team will be awarded 5 points or will retain its bonus points gained  (if more than 5) if 15 overs or more of the second innings have been completed.

The correct table is:

How are clubs expected to trust the league tables on ldcc.play-cricket.com when the people controlling them, and supposedly checking, don't even know the points system? What makes it worse, is that they incorrectly add points.
