Tigers investigate NRL crowd incident

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 30/04/2017 Scott Bailey

The Wests Tigers are working with NSW Police to investigate crowd trouble at the end of Saturday's 22-16 loss to Cronulla.

Footage from the crowd appears to show a near-full can of drink being projected towards Cronulla and Tigers players following the match.

"Wests Tigers have been made aware of an incident in the crowd at the conclusion of Saturday night's game against the Cronulla Sharks," the club said in a statement.

"Wests Tigers do not condone crowd disturbances, or the throwing of objects onto the field.

"Wests Tigers are working with NSW Police in regards to the incident and will make no further comment until this investigation is complete."

Former Tiger turned Sharks forward Andrew Fifita angrily approached the crowd following the incident.

The matter is the latest as tensions spill over amongst frustrated Tigers fans in the past fortnight - but the first to include violence.

Captain Aaron Woods was booed onto the field for a second consecutive week after it was revealed he would not re-sign with the club - before confirming on Sunday he would join Canterbury.

Banners at his home ground also labelled him a "dog", while there were also banners against outgoing stars Mitchell Moses and James Tedesco.

It comes after the club sent an email to members on Monday, pleading with them to stop heckling Woods for the remainder of the season.
