Smoke Bombs
In recent games across Super League there have been incidents involving smoke bombs, including our match at Wakefield last week. The message on this matter needs to be 100% clear, under no circumstances will we tolerate this kind of activity. If this happens at Castleford Tigers the person responsible will find themselves with a lengthy club ban. Not only is it a stupid act, it's also a very dangerous one that could cause unnecessary panic and alarm to other fans including children and the elderly.
