Firstly I would suggest to Pat Richards to get on to his agent and ask for a slot on "This Morning" to tell them how he was nearly hit by a lighter and how it upset him.

Secondly, contact the Daily Mail to do something similar

Thirdly bring out a book a week or so later and dedicate a whole chapter to the incident

If you take into account the 40,000 fine that Cas got (Now halved after appeal) this should be huge.

Witnessed by thousands on TV the missile throwing incident has surely done a lot of damage to our great game.

Unless HKR come out and ban these iditos within a week or so the book should be thrown at them


Or should it be Wigan for the stewards not preventing such actions?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

You can't prevent a missile being thrown. It's a split-second thing.

It's about how you deal with it. Did they chuck out the culprit(s)? What procedures are there to follow?

I think the OP has a very fair point. Chanting does not endanger players, it shows a lack of understanding of their sensibilities, the poor luvs.

There did appear to be just one incident of a lighter making it's way on to the playing surface, though the Sky cameramen and broadcast editor may have picked up more and declined to the pictures.
I didn't see hordes of KR fans down at the front of the stand making efforts to trespass on to the playing surface and assault the Wigan players either, then again the cameras were not down at that end too much.

Did the match officials see more than we were shown and make the decision not to insist the Wigan players stood behind the posts, or were the KR supporters so uncontrolled by the club stewards that player safety could be compromised.

Either way, it looked terrible and that one incident could actually do the image and reputation of the game massive harm. Huge fine for Wigan failing to have sufficiently well trained stewards to prevent player safety possibly being compromised, and a huge fine for Rovers for not asking their fans to behave properly at all times.

I've posted on the Union site on a similar topic about Hull KR's crowd problems. Craven Park is the only ground where I've been physically threatened. I shouted for Fev in the old Threepenny Stand at the Boulevard, with some banter but no problem. I've even shouted for Fev at Wheldon Road and not had a problem. After their action against Cas surely the RFL should take some action should be taken against Hull KR. I suppose there is an argument that it didn't happen at Craven Park whereas the Cas incident did happen at Wheldon Road, nevertheless I believe there is a long standing problem at Hull KR.

In fairness I'm not aiming this at all HKR fans, just the few that should get the club a hefty fine.

Apologies to the decent ones and cookey

Not much seems to have been made of this. Are the RFL trying to keep it quiet? I've never seen the players stand on the halfway line for their own safety during a conversion before. Only takes one moron in a thousand or two though. Was anything else other than the lighter thrown on? I heard some coins were too. Hit them with 40k, half suspended for a couple of years. That might sharpen their minds that they may have a problem.

You've no need to get on a high horse about this one. The only previous trouble at the JJB/DW was when Hull visited a few years ago, which involved Paul Cooke's mates on a stag do.

Possibly so but lets' keep this thread on track please and discuss the action the RFL will take against cookey and his mates at HKR?

Could be some Stonewalling going on here........unless of course someone at the ground makes a complaint. I wonder if it was in the match commissioners report.

KT I totally understand your frustration with this, your club was made an example of simple as that but the RFL have now set out their stall and should therefore deal with this incident created by the minority more harshly in my opinion than the miniority that were politically incorrect at the Jungle.

but it is the RFL. KR by now should have been able to obtain security footage from the DW identified the #### and banned them. I have not looked on their website so cannot confirm if they have done this or not.

the other thing which I think is going out of our game is we always self policed it. The real KR fans (by this I mean true supporters not these idiot football fans infiltrating our game) should have ran down their in numbers and beat the living $hit out of these idiots.

to answer your question large fine and a second offence leads to a home KR tie with no home fans allowed.

oh for gods sake kenny, how can a cas fan pontificate about the behaviour of another clubs fans after your own fans behaviour in the last two seasons???

that said, it does appear to be endemic with yorkshire clubs, first hull the cas and now hullkr..................

Nowhere have I said my clubs fans are angels - I am asking for opinions on how the HKR Club should be punished for the actions of one or two of their fans.

Do you think seeing Wigan players not standing under the sticks is a good image for our great game - unfortunately these scenes were rescreened on the BBC yesterday and a couple of colleagues from work mentioned it.

Do you think the fine should be equal to or more than the one Cas got?

Unfortunately, due to how common this is in football no one will take a blind bit of notice, except for Union correspondents looking for mud.

I say unfortunately, as football has lowered the expectancy of any one as to what sports fans are like, which is not a good thing. I noticed in passing the other day how some football manager had manhandled a referee, so as long as our game stamps down on it, we're very well placed in the grand scheme of things

don't get me wrong kenny, i agree with everything you say. and yes hkr should get the same punishment as cas, simply because they "attacked" players on the pitch by throwing objects at them.
