Fight among Salford Red Devils players and fans

On Monday, at a rugby league match, players jumped into the crowd, stating that they were protecting their family members after a battle broke out in one of the stands.

Pictures on social networking sites showed some Salford Red Devils rugby players in the away end as the affray broke out, after it was realized that some of the rugby players’ families had become worried and were asking for help.

The Red Devils foretold a thorough probe into the scenes that marred the end of their high-profile Super League game against Huddersfield Giants at John Smith’s stadium. Also, the club confirmed to the Guardian that it had started a probe into all scenes of the incident in an endeavor to find those creditworthy.

The spokesperson told that they were working closely with Huddersfield Giants to identify those responsible for what happened following that day’s First Utility Super League match against the Giants at the John Smith’s stadium. Now, they are fully investigating not just what started it, but those people involved too and how it was dealt with.

The game was won by Salford 26-24. Earlier, the club took to Twitter to insist that they would work in collaboration with Huddersfield to find out who is responsible. They said: “We’d like to apologise for the behaviour of some of our fans today. We’ll be working with @Giantsrl to find those involved. We do not condone any behaviour of the sort.”
