Keighley Cougars coach issued with two-month stadium ban

An RFL Operational Rule Tribunal has imposed a two-month suspension on Keighley Cougars player-coach Paul March for verbally abusing match officials.

Under the terms of the suspension, March is prohibited from entering any stadium in which Keighley Cougars are playing until July 8, 2014.

The sanction was handed down after March was found guilty of improper conduct and breaching the game’s Respect Policy following comments made to the match referee at the end of the Keighley Cougars v Leigh Centurions Kingston Press Championship fixture on March 9 2014.

March pleaded not guilty.

The offence took place whilst March was serving a four-match suspension as a player for questioning the integrity of a match official following a Championship fixture against Doncaster in February.
