Featherstone Rovers v Halifax Panthers, agreed decision

Featherstone Rovers v Halifax Panthers, agreed decision

 The RFL have reached an agreed decision with Featherstone Rovers following incidents of supporter misbehaviour which breached the RFL’s Operational Rules in their Betfred Championship Play-Off fixture against Halifax Panthers on October 2.

The club has been fined for failing to use Best Endeavours in terms of supporter behaviour, with the club to spend the sum of the fine on high-profile support of the RFL’s Tackle it and Enjoy the Game campaigns related to discrimination and supporter behaviour.

A suspended fine of £3,000 imposed following a previous case of supporter misconduct in the 2021 season has been activated, and the club have been fined an additional £5,000 with that punishment suspended until the end of the 2023 season.
