Warrington release statement against allegations of fan racism

Warrington have release a statement acknowledging the allegation of racist abuse against Mikolaj Oledzki during the Wolves’ 27-26 win over Leeds last night.

Oledzki has since reported the allegation to the RFL, but Warrington have taken it upon themselves to release their own statement following the incident:

“THE CLUB IS AWARE OF ALLEGATIONS OF RACIST ABUSE DIRECTED TOWARDS LEEDS RHINOS PLAYER MIKOLAJ OLEDZKI FROM ONE OF OUR SUPPORTERS DURING LAST NIGHT’S BETFRED SUPER LEAGUE ROUND 17 FIXTURE.

Warrington Wolves strongly condemns racism and discrimination and it has no place at our Club, in Rugby League or in society.

An investigation will now take place in conjunction with Leeds Rhinos and the Rugby Football League and no further comment will be made at this stage.”

The Polish-born prop said he was “disappointed” and “shocked” about the language levelled at him.
