Catalan Dragons fined for supporters' abuse of officials

Stade Gilbert Brutus

Catalan Dragons have been fined £2,000 by the Rugby Football League for fans' intimidation of match officials in June's defeat by Hull KR.

Rovers scored a late converted try to win 22-21 at the Stade Ernest Wallon.

An RFL statement read: "Catalan Dragons have been fined £2,000 after their supporters verbally abused and intimidated match officials.

"The charges were brought after the club failed to provide information to the investigation into the incident."

It continued: "In finding the club guilty of misconduct, the tribunal ruled that £1,000 be payable within 28 days and a further £1,000 be suspended until the end of the 2014 season."

It is the second fine handed to the club in recent months after in August.
