2N was explained as a relay to 3 on both sides of the screen.

Both North and South enquired about 3 to their respective screenmates (more about this later).

After winning the club lead (3, 2, 7, A), declarer played ace of trumps and a trump.  On the club return, he draws trump and establishes hearts to make the contract.  The defenders ask each other what explanation they received and call the director.

North and East (screenmates) agree that East said "maximum reverse".  East also claims that there are no actual agreements and that "maximum reverse" is just bridge.

South claims to have received the explanation "5=6".  West claims to have explained "no agreement but I'm 5=6".

How would you rule?
