Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith was the victim of a resignation hoax on the club’s official Facebook page.
Shortly after the full-time hooter of the 38-12 defeat against Salford, a post appeared stating that the Australian had resigned.
The post read: “BREAKING: Warrington Wolves can confirm that Tony Smith has left his position as head coach following today’s defeat. More news to follow.”
However, the club quickly removed the post and explained that it was a result of someone hacking the club’s Facebook page.
