Operational Rules breaches – agreed decisions

Operational Rules breaches – agreed decisions

Three Super League clubs have been fined for breaches of the Operational Rules relating to fan misbehaviour in the 2022 season.

Castleford Tigers have been fined £5,000, of which £3,000 is suspended until the end of the 2024 season, following incidents in three away fixtures – at Hull KR on February 25, Huddersfield Giants on March 12 and a Challenge Cup tie at Leeds Rhinos on March 26. 

The club’s efforts in tackling the misbehaviour of a small number of supporters – which included a violent incident at Hull KR and letting off flares at Leeds and Huddersfield – have been recognised. Castleford have agreed to spend an additional £2,000 with a specific purpose of improving supporter behaviour. 

Hull KR have been fined £2,000 – the activation of a suspended £2,000 fine imposed for an Operational Rules breach in the 2021 season relating to supporter misbehaviour – with a further £2,000 fine suspended until the end of the 2023 season, relating to their home game against Castleford on February 25. 

Warrington Wolves have agreed to pay costs of £3,000 for the damage done to visiting supporters’ coaches after their home fixture against Castleford Tigers on February 17 – with an additional fine of £2,000 imposed for failing to adopt appropriate measures in controlling the behaviour of spectators. The fine is suspended until the end of the 2023 season.
