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, with £3,000 suspended until the end of the 2024 season. This follows incidents in three away fixtures – Hull KR, Huddersfield and a Challenge Cup tie at Leeds.
The Rugby Football League add in a statement: “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.”
