Daryl Powell fined for entering field of play during defeat against St Helens

Castleford coach Daryl Powell has been handed a suspended fine of £5,000 for entering the field of play during the recent defeat against St Helens.

Powell was clearly unhappy with his side’s performance in the 42-12 loss in March and got attention after being captured on the Sky Sports cameras.

An RFL statement said: “Powell’s punishment, for breaching Operational Rule D1:13, takes into account his acceptance of the breach, and assurance that it will not occur again – as well as the club’s approach and assistance with all aspects of the matter.

“The £5,000 fine has therefore been suspended until the end of the 2019 season, and will only become payable in the event of further breaches of the Operational Rules relating to non-field personnel entering the field of play outside of RFL Regulations.”
