Castleford Tigers release strong statement on crowd trouble following Leeds Rhinos victory

Castleford Tigers have released a strong statement concerning the use of flares.

The club has said: “Supporters are reminded that Castleford Tigers takes a zero-tolerance stance on the use of pyrotechnics, at both our own home ground and at our fellow clubs’ venues too.

“Following the recent use of smoke bombs at Tigers’ away fixtures, the Club is calling for assistance in identifying the people responsible for their use. If you have any information or footage which will help the Club, please contact

“Anyone who is found in possession of smoke bombs, flares, fireworks, or any kind of pyrotechnic in or around rugby league stadia will receive a lifetime ban from entry at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

“Whether it is a home or away fixture, the safety of all supporters is vital, and we wish for every Castleford Tigers fan to be able to enjoy their day safely.”

Castleford recently took on Leeds Rhinos in the Challenge Cup Sixth Round on Saturday and thrashed their local rivals comprehensively.

As such, the Tigers have set up a tasty Quarter-Final fixture with Hull KR – whom they beat on the road for a place in the Quarter-Finals in 2021.
