The Herald is legally prohibited from airing the contents of those arguments.
Mr de Belin, who is on an annual playing contract of almost $600,000, is set to miss the rest of the NRL season, the second season he has been sidelined since the charges.
He was the first player stood down over the no-fault policy, which he unsuccessfully challenged in the Federal Court, and later dropped an appeal.
Both men were in the dock as Judge Haesler read out his decision on Friday.
