i was sat in the east stand at the away end and saw a kr fan being thrown out quite early on, two stewards were escorting him off and he suddenly went for a third one taking a swipe at him but missed, i think this incident happened after a richard goal kick, the fan wanted to keep the ball and someone threw it back on field and he took exception.
there was quite a few coins thrown although i didn't see them thrown i saw them being removed from the pitch by stewards.
it is a shame because the majority of fans and i think there was about 2000 were well behaved and in good voice.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

As Neil Hudgell will no doubt point out in due course , I believe a precedent has already been set for away fans, when the RFL decided that Hull FC were not responsible for their fans invading the Craven Park pitch a couple of seasons ago and took action against the home side (Hull KR) for same...

Any action should therefore be against Wigan/the stadium for failing to protect the players....

Not my view , but the RFL have made their bed and can easily be held to it....

The two incidents don't really bear comparison.

Hull KR were pulled up because their stewards had allowed the Hull fans onto the pitch. It was a serious error of judgement on the part of those responsible, however well intentioned. As the host club Hull KR were naturally held responsible.

As far as I could see, the stewards handled the incident at the DW in an appropriate manner.

The matter is in Hull KR's hand IMO. If they act swiftly to identify and ban those responsible, then I'm sure the RFL will look favourably on them. If they pretend they don't have a problem they could and should be hammered.

As someone who attended, I was embarrassed by the behaviour of a section of our support on Friday night. Throwing anything onto the pitch is just not acceptable no matter what the provocation. I hope that the cctv has good images to allow suitable identification of the offenders.

I know that Rovers are co-operating fully with this process, but its fairly hard for me to understand how the club can take any action other than banning individuals after the event. The problem appears to be beer-related. The official club coaches are beer-free, but there is always a multitude of pub-run buses for the big games. There was 28 coaches at Wigan on Friday night and about 24 of them would have been organised privately by various pubs in the area.

I would welcome serious suggestions as to how Rovers can take preventative measures to improve the behaviour next season. Perhaps all us who travel by car should be sorting out the drunken masses - although I suspect I will be recovering in hospital for a while after that one!

First of all I must add my feelings of anger over the idiots who were throwing things on to the pitch. Hopefully they can be identified and action taken against them.

With regard to size of fine and any other punishment handed out, it is very difficult for me to be objective for obvious reasons.

I will say that after the lighter was thrown then there were only perhaps 1/2 a dozen coins thrown. (Still too many I know). The lighter I believe was thrown at Sam Tomkins, this may have something to do with an incident that occurred at our place a couple of weeks ago, other people then must have thought it was a good idea to throw something.

I think the Wigan players were very sensible in doing what they did as this then removed themselves from harm and also stopped the incident from escalating.

From my position, which was to the left of the posts from my point of view, all the objects that were thrown came from just behind the posts. I must admit I did not see the stewards do a great deal, but I was trying to watch the game.

As has been stated by other posters, many games have had incidents were things have been thrown onto the pitch, it does appear to be a problem that is increasing and also some grounds lend themselves to this more than others. One thing that I think could have been done differently would have been to have banned any beer in the seats (as it was at the KC) this just keeps a bit of a lid on the drinking of a few of the nutters.

I think you are punishing the majority because of a tiny minority when you take these steps. Stiff penalties are undoubtebly the ultimate deterrent, if they face six months in clink they simply wouldn't throw things on the pitch.

They should ban beer at the DW anyway. The constant trail of people to and from the bar and to and from the toilets throughout the game is so annoying and irritating.

as for the incident: investigate, identify, sanction the individuals, work with the clubs to minimise risk of repetition, but no sledgehammer, no martyrs.

An entirely different situation to Cas, who probably still don't get what they did wrong.

Very very patronising
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

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

So what is wrong with the approach I suggested?

For one, you're reminding everyone of your absolutely terrible behaviour towards a player, and two, you're whining.

A bit like that little sh*t Tomkins whining on in the paper about banning fans for life now he's had a couple of coins thrown at him. Funny how his mouth was zipped shut when the wigan tramps were throwing all and su ndry on the pitch at headingley back in May. A bit like most Wiganers, short memories and only one eye.

Indeed. I don't recall a full RFL inquiry after that incident shown live on BBC1 on a Saturday afternoon. Robert Hicks (linesman) was hit with an object that day.
