The RFL has launched a formal investigation into the off-field disturbances that marred the Stobart Super League Round 10 fixture, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats v Castleford Tigers at Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Friday April 6.
The investigation will centre on the incidents involving supporters of both clubs both inside and outside the stadium and the way in which the incidents were managed.
The RFL will be making no further comment until the conclusion of the investigation.
Wildcats Chief Executive, James Elston, reiterated the clubs zero tolerance policy to unacceptable behaviour.
“We are in full support of the RFL investigation and as per our statement on Saturday afternoon, we will not hesitate to take the strongest action possible in banning any individuals found to be guilty from the investigation.
“Rugby league as a sport and Wakefield Wildcats as a club prides itself on being family friendly and this is something we will strive to maintain by ensuring the people involved in Friday’s nights incidents are banned from attending fixtures in the future.
“Our initial investigations have already identified a number of people and we will be taking action against them.
“We’d like to thank people who have come forward with information and once again thank the supporters of both clubs who in the vast majority created a fantastic atmosphere on Good Friday.”
Any supporters who witnessed any behaviour that they deemed unacceptable on Friday are asked to e-mail the club via firstname.lastname@example.org and make the subject of the e-mail ‘Wakefield vs. Castleford’.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
