So i heard that at Rochdale last week, Byron Smith had an upset stomach, and during a break in play could not refuse the call of nature and had to relieve his pain in a bin in the enpty stand out of view. A steward saw him crouched over said bin and reported him to the RFL who are investigating.

He also apparently soiled himself at half time, which clearly shows the poor lad wasnt well.

Has anyone any idea if the RFL have any rules regarding such instances? He surely cant be disciplined for being unwell?
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

I saw him run off after they had scored their first try. I thought he mistaken off after missing a one on one tackle leading up to the try.
He ran past the benches and into the main stand though.

Not sure what you saw there Distant but Baz definitely ran off the top end of the field and ran round the back of the stand for his "toilet break" then reappeared and came back over the fence
Surely there's no case to answer to the RFL ?

Its like turning up at allerton bywater for birkenshaw in 1998 for a yorkshire amateur game to find some sport had smeared dog or person do do allover the changing rooms.

Warm welcome eh?

Surely the old boys at red hall will realise the difference between illness and vandalism

Neither am l. I was sat at the end where spectators came in and he ran off in front of me and l assumed towards the tunnel.

Anyway l am sure nothing will come of it all.
