    Default Catalan

    I see Catalan have been fined 25,000, half of it suspended until the end of the 2023 season for the fans behaviour when they played Leeds in September.

    In a further sanction, also suspended until the end of the 2023 season, they have been warned that "any further misbehaviour will lead to an unprecedented punishment in the Super League era of having to play two home games behind closed doors".

    They have clearly not considered the fans who have already booked and paid to travel over there. How can this be fair on the away supporters? So basically if the French fans cant behave the travelling fans will each be hundreds of pounds out of pocket!

    If that does happen then you would hope that plenty of notice would be given. A couple of games in the following season maybe? I can't see something like that being a quick decision.
    ...Then again, it's the RFL we're talking about here!

    How do you know they haven't thought about fans? The punishment could well be into the next season before fixtures have been announced.

    Their fans absolutely bombarded the referees with missiles, they should take any and every action necessary to stamp it out regardless of a couple hundred people's jollies or not.

    It will be interesting how the demolition of the 2 stands will have a possible effect on the behaviour of home fans. These will be all standing fan zones and will be free to roam and "gang up" in these areas, will the club "police" and increase the number of stewards.

    To be honest they are two very small areas that are hardly ever used. They are open to the Sun and are closed every time there is lightening. Unless they cover those areas?? I dont see many using them to watch the game.
