“Players are out in pubs after every game but the same players aren’t allowed to sit next to each other on a coach” – how social media reacted to Castleford, Huddersfield and Salford given huge fines for rule breaches

Castleford, Huddersfield and Salford were all given massive fines by the RFL yesterday for breaching Operational Rules. But, just how did social media react to the news?

Some people questioned why Castleford were picked up on the COVID issue following the Challenge Cup Final, but St Helens weren’t.

Another Castleford fan couldn’t understand it.

That sentiment was echoed by another Twitter user.

One Tigers fan asked how distancing on a coach was possible.

Some went even further to describe the current social problem.

One Tigers supporter pleaded with the club not to appeal the decision.

Another called into the question how players could actually socially distance on a coach.

Another Twitter user was confused as to why Huddersfield were punished.

One Wakefield fan was confused as to why his side had not been awarded a 24-0 victory against Salford.

One Castleford fan did see the funny side of things.
