The RFL are set to investigate an allegation into sexist abuse at Featherstone Rovers’ home game against Halifax Panthers on Saturday night.
Rovers ran out 42-10 winners, but the game was marred by apparent sexism aimed at women stood in the Halifax away end of the Millennium Stadium.
A spokesman from the RFL – when contacted by Serious About Rugby League – responded: “We’ve been made aware of it, we will wait for the Ground Safety Officer Report in the usual way and make a decision in terms of looking into it further.”
For Rovers, their dominant victory ensured a tense play-off final away at Toulouse next Saturday night, but they won’t be wanting any potential off-field incident to mar their build-up.
Featherstone already have experience in the so-called Million Pound Game, having gone down 24-6 to Toronto Wolfpack back in 2019, whilst Toulouse will be hoping it is first time lucky at the Stade Ernest Wallon.
