It’s the second time Rovers have been fined by the RFL this season after two incidents at a game against Rochdale earlier in the year.

The club are now also investigating comments made on social media by several supporters following yesterday’s game with Halifax RLFC.

Featherstone Rovers CEO, Davide Longo, said: “We are extremely disappointed that a small section of people has let the entire club and game down.

“We encourage fans to create an atmosphere, but we must respect everyone within the stadium and adhere to the stadium regulations.

“We are incurring fines that were never factored into our budgets and this will now impact on the club moving forward.

“We will continue to monitor the current situation and we will issue banning orders to anybody found to be using foul and abusive language.”
