Featherstone fined and fans to be segregated due to misbehaviour

Rovers punished for the second time in a month by the Rugby Football League.

Featherstone are to introduce crowd segregation after being punished for the second time in a month for misbehaviour by their fans.

Rovers have been fined £10,000 by the Rugby Football League following an investigation into unacceptable language by a section of their fans during their Championship match against Bradford.

The investigation found that Featherstone had failed to comply with the RFL's operational rules for a second time after being fined over two incidents at a home game against Rochdale.

The club, who have already put in place a crowd care text service which enables supporters to report any misconduct or foul behaviour anonymously, say they will issue banning orders in future and, in the meantime, will segregate fans for the visit of Leigh on Sunday.

Featherstone chief executive Davide Longo said: "We are extremely disappointed that a small section of people has let the entire club and game down.

"We encourage fans to create an atmosphere but we must respect everyone within the stadium and adhere to the stadium regulations.

"We are incurring fines that were never factored into our budgets and this will now impact on the club moving forward.

"We will continue to monitor the current situation and we will issue banning orders to anybody found to be using foul and abusive language."
