“We will be taking firm action to make it clear this behaviour is totally unacceptable.”

Both clubs involved also released statements to condemn the incidents that occurred.

chairman Bernard Guasch said: “We are shocked at what happened.

“The Gilbert Brutus Stadium has always been a festive place and we are saddened with the scenes we saw tonight.

“We have never witnessed such incidents in 13 years in Super League. We are now waiting for the CCTV footages before making any decision.”

Meanwhile, Warrington said they were “deeply disappointed with the incidents” at the end of Saturday’s game.

A statement added: “The club is working in conjunction with and Super League to gather further information, and determine the appropriate action required.

“The club does not condone this behaviour and strongly believes that scenes like this have no place in our sport.
