Fryston banned from cup after racist chants
Tuesday 14 June 2011
The Castleford amateur club, Fryston Warriors, have been banned from the Challenge Cup for two years after crowd trouble at their ground.
The club was found guilty of breaching the Rugby League's Respect Policy over racist and homophobic chanting by the home crowd at ties against Dudley Hill and Batley.
Fryston, however, say they have been treated unfairly. Their coach, Malcolm Agar, said: "The people who allegedly misbehaved have nothing to do with our club and seem to have just latched on to us." Castleford Tigers were last season fined over homophobic abuse aimed at Crusaders' Gareth Thomas.
Warrington are reportedly negotiating to sign Kangaroo forward Trent Waterhouse. They are still linked strongly with Salford's Stefan Ratchford.
