WARRINGTON Wolves have today announced that they have issued a series of banning orders following crowd trouble at the recent away game against Widnes Vikings at Halton Stadium.
A club spokesman said: “The club, and the sport of Rugby League, will not tolerate the behaviour displayed and will not allow a small minority to overshadow the fantastic true supporters at Warrington Wolves.”
Two smoke bombs were set off at the “away” end of the stadium at half time, filling the area with smoke.
Another was thrown onto the artificial pitch from the West Stand at the end of the game, which Warrington won 18-10
The club worked with Widnes to identify the offenders. One man has received a life ban from all Warrington home and away fixtures following on from a previous offence in which a short-term ban was issued.
A further three males have received two-year bans from The Halliwell Jones Stadium.
The spokesman added: “The club would like to thank supporters for their co-operation in assisting with identifying these offenders and, for the continued support of the club and team.”
