Found guilty of verbally abusing referee
Rochdale Hornets coach John Stankevitch has been fined £1,000 after a RFL Tribunal Operational Rules Tribunal found him guilty of verbally abusing a match official during a Northern Rail Cup tie against Keighley Cougars on February 26, 2012.
Stankevitch was deemed to be guilty of improper conduct and a breach of the sport’s Respect Policy which states that a coach should never engage in public criticism of officials and should conduct himself at all times and in all situations in a manner that demonstrates leadership, respect for Rugby League and respect for all those that are involved in the game.
The Tribunal suspended £500 of the £1,000 fine until the end of the 2013 season but ordered Stankevitch to surrender a further £250 which had been suspended from a previous misconduct charge.
Stankevitch has the right of appeal under Operational Rule D1:33
