In recent games across Super League there have been incidents involving smoke bombs. 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.
