I do too. Too much work gone on over the last few year to allow some drunken idiots to spoil it all I also hope the club name them and ban them for life we don't need them

It was stupid. We got covered in beer. However, Brierley did provoke it, especially throwing the ball into the Fev crowd after his second try, if he'd been playing soccer he'd have been sent off for that. I hope he has been disciplined.

Don`t blame Breirley for some Numptie throwing onto the pitch. Well done to Fev for making the statement and for fans highlighting the clown involved.. We all as fans feel incensed when opposing players score at `our` end  but even the throwing of a ball as never made me that outraged to throw a projectile onto the field, a few expletives maybe..

Of course you are right, the celebration of the try by Brierley should have had no bearing on the fans behaviour, they were drunken morons. After the incident I did go and suggest to the stewards that why didn't they close the bars in that area but we all knew the answer to that, ££££ signs in their eyes before the safety of people

I don't defend what the Fev fans did, but the fact is that after his first try he made obscene gestures to the Fev fans, and after his second he threw the ball at them, IMO he should have been yellow carded after the second incident. You cannot possibly have seen this, I did, it was less than ten yards from where I was sitting. Players are paid professionals.  They are not on the field to provoke opposition fans, who after all are paying customers.

I can also verify that he did this as I was sat on the front row of seats, the ball also hit a spectator on the head

Anyway at least the club are making positive steps on the issue and started their investigations yesterday and have received some names of the perpetrators from various fans.

As my mother (a T-Totaller) used memorably to say "when beer's in wit's out."  I never drink when watching rugby, I've a job to follow what's happening sober, plus I can't do to be constantly going to the used beer department.

I applaud Featherstone's swift response to Sunday's incident. They have now set down a marker, that all other clubs should/must follow, with any of their misbehaving 'fans'.

You will find the comments on RL fans are totally behind how you have handled it - respect given from one set of fans to the next, the minority will not spoil it for the vast majority

Funny that, I've just seen him chuck the ball into the crowd again on the Super League show - BTW his second try came off a forward pass too.

He didn't throw it at a fan or do obscene gestures though did he, for some reason that's how Ryan normally celebrates scoring and has the ref pointed out Sunday at your end was not the best place to do it

He certainly made gestures after the first try, it was right in front of me, and he certainly threw the ball into the crowd with some force, it hit a man who was behind me on the head.  He should be disciplined by Leigh. The fact the he hasn't been speaks volumes for the attitude of the Leigh club.

Well done Fev, but personally I would name and shame these idiots. I feel all clubs do not do enough to get tough on the one or two morons that bring shame on us, our clubs and game.

Looking forward to coming to Fev on Sunday always a good day out and a great meal in the Fev Hotel, also we meet a few Fev mates and as all the other Fev fans are a great bunch of blokes. Also all the fans we met in Leigh town centre where a credit to your club.

Apparently they cannot be named and shamed, mores the pity.
