Rugby Football League to investigate Hull KR and St Helens crowd trouble

The Rugby Football League will be talking to both Hull KR and St Helens following unsavoury scenes after the Super League match between the two clubs over the weekend. Footage of crowd trouble after the hooter had sounded at Craven Park has emerged online which shows supporters from both clubs involved in a heated incident.

That footage has now made its way to the governing body who are set to investigate and could result in a fine for the Robins, given they are already in a period of a suspended sentence for a previous incident.

When contacted by Rugby League Live, an RFL spokesperson said: “After becoming aware of disturbing clips on social media from Saturday’s match, the RFL will be contacting both clubs for their observations, in addition to considering the usual reports.”

Footage that has circulated on social media appears to show supporters being held back and bottles being thrown.

It came after an excellent win for Rovers as they defeated St Helens 40-20, a victory that moved them to the top of Super League. They have now defeated Saints and Wigan Warriors back-to-back and will look to further add to that impressive sequence when they take on Sam Burgess' Warrington Wolves side on Thursday.

The Wire, who are also joint top with five other sides, host the Robins with both sides knowing they will be outright leaders, for 24 hours at least, if they are victorious at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
