Rugby Football League statement – Salford Red Devils v Leeds Rhinos

The Rugby Football League is aware of an incident involving a supporter at the end of the Salford Red Devils and Leeds Rhinos fixture at the AJ Bell Stadium yesterday (Sunday, July 9).

Physical and verbal abuse towards a match official, player, coach or fellow spectator is absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the Rugby Football League.

Rugby League grounds are a place where everyone should be able to enjoy watching and participating in our sport and this enjoyment should not be ruined by the actions of a small number of individuals.

The Rugby Football League is reviewing the incident that took place on Sunday and will provide an update when complete.
