Grand Final Duo Warned By RFL

Grand Final Duo Warned By RFL

Both of this year’s Grand Finalists Wigan and Warrington have been warned about their behaviour following their half-time scuffle.

The melee followed a couple of controversial moments in the first half at Old Trafford and was sparked by a clash between Wire centre Bryson Goodwin and Wigan’s Morgan Escare.

As Rugby League punch-ups go, it was a relatively tame affair but the incident was included in the match commissioner’s report and the Rugby Football League have now addressed the situation.

It said in a statement: “Warnings have been issued to Wigan and Warrington under B1:38 which states:
“Each club shall ensure that none of its players or club officials engage in a brawl.

“A brawl is defined as a total of two or more players or club officials from a team being involved in an incident of fighting or aggressive physical contact on the pitch and surrounding areas before, during or after a match.”
