In terms of the stuff in the stands, I’ll back Wire to the hilt. This has been coming and Catalans need to get a grip. There was a tense atmosphere at our last game there in April 2018 and there were some ugly scenes part way through the game outside the bars to the left hand hand side of the away end.

Catalans have a problem IMO. There are groups of lads turning up to games and standing under that away section looking for trouble. I went down and stood down there during that April 2018 game and had to bite my lip because there were people there looking for trouble.

I have been to perpignan on numerous occasions sometimes on my own I've sat in the main stand and I've never seen a hint of trouble I've even shared drinks before and after the game

They are animals and racist i remember when Henderson Gill scored at the Fletcher street end and they threw bananas and made monkey noises he just imitated a monkey but it could have gone the other way if he'd gone into the crowd

Too much ale, too much heat and a fanbase that perhaps has attracted the wrong sort, warrington need to sort it out fasts suspect a rather tasty fine is incoming for them too

Wire have long attracted a certain scum element. Not sure why. A friend of mine who supports them says the same thing, but feels they are mostly footy yobs who turn up when the club is doing well ... which with Wembley just around the corner would probably be around now.

It's very difficult, though, to forgive a club whose supporters once beat up a bunch of kids in wheelchairs - which happened at the Regal Trophy Final at Huddersfield in 1995. That's the most trouble before, during and after a game that I've ever seen, and it was all from Warrington fans. They also a wrecked a pub. We'd just parked up close to the kick off, when a copper, very red-faced, came up to us and said: 'Don't go that way, lads. The Warrington fans are acting like total d##kheads!'

One of the problems with the Catalan, of course, especially when they're at home, is that they don't respond well to the stress of close matches (or to their players being sent off). I've been there when we've had people shouting at us and fists shaken in our faces ... so they are not without fault, though I've never known any actual violence from them.

How provocative they were being yesterday, I don't know, but all you really saw on the TV was Warrington fans trying to climb into a Catalan family enclosure. In terms of public order offences, that rates very highly indeed. It's almost a mortal sin. Whatever the French did, I suspect (or at least hope) that Warrington are in line for an exemplary punishment - and it won't work if it's just the one or two fans who got caught. It needs to be the WHOLE club.

Warrington Wolves will easily identify the instigators, they should be banned for life, no reprisals! Every game I have been to involving Warrington fans, be it home or away (even the Grand Final), I have experienced a level of hostility from their fans that is unrivaled. I get that most don't like Wigan, comes with the territory, but by God they actually raise it up a notch to a level that you know by giving it back would easily escalate to violence or projectiles. Always found it better to just laugh it off! Leaving the Halliwell Jones is the only occasion in rugby league when I have my lad with me that you actually feel a little uneasy.

Warrington is the only ground i go to that is slightly intimidating, and has that feeling that something is about to kick off.

I'm ex-doors and an ex-bailiff, so not a shrinking violet who is intimidated easily, but it's always in the air there :)

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.
