Two more fan incidents for RFL to consider

As the season concluded, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull KR, Leigh Leopards and Salford Red Devils had plenty to play for.

It has been one of the most competitive seasons ever with a battle at the top, a play off battle and a relegation scarp.

This has upped the anxiety on Super League fans who are in general the best behaved fans as we see every year at Magic Weekend.

However, there have been a few incidents lately with the RFL considering investigations into the Hull KR fan who ran onto the pitch against Catalans Dragons and Featherstone Rovers fans at Odsal who reportedly fought amongst themselves during the game.

There have been two more incidents lately with Hull FC fans reportedly causing trouble at Castleford Tigers and Salford Red Devils acknowledging problems at Hull KR..

These could also be looked at by the RFL.

Salford has also acknowledged that they could suffer punishment for this.

In a statement posted to the clubs website this week, the Red Devils have said: “the club is aware of and is investigating incidents of anti-social behaviour reported at our game against Hull KR on Saturday. The reported incidents have placed others at risk and can result in the club being issued heavy fines.”

They added: “We are proud of the passion so often displayed in the stands by our fans, and whilst we understand the excitement on the field can get us all carried away at times, it is our collective responsibility to ensure a respectful and safe environment for all to enjoy. Disorder and the behaviour of a small group should not and will not be allowed to give our supporters a bad name.

“We’d like to remind our supporters that we condemn such behaviour, and that once reviewed, the Club will be taking appropriate action and issuing bans to any offenders identified.”

The Red Devils fell to a 12-0 defeat during the game on Saturday; however they still remain in the hunt for the playoffs as they are still level on points with Warrington Wolves going into the final game of the season.
