Daryl Powell fined for entering field of play

Daryl Powell has been handed a £5,000 suspended fine for entering the field of play during the Castleford’s defeat to St Helens.

The Tigers chief entered the field of play after watching his side struggle in the first half against Saints last month.

An RFL statement said: “Powell’s punishment, for breaching Operational Rule D1:13, takes into account his acceptance of the breach, and assurance that it will not occur again – as well as the club’s approach and assistance with all aspects of the matter.

“The £5,000 fine has therefore been suspended until the end of the 2019 season, and will only become payable in the event of further breaches of the Operational Rules relating to non-field personnel entering the field of play outside of RFL Regulations.”
