Wakefield have issued a statement to supporters ahead of Sunday’s match with Catalans.

The fixture could mark Israel Folau’s debut for the Dragons and Trinity have directly addressed the matter on their official channels.

The club says it is eager to place emphasis on its positive work around inclusivity, while also warning supports that anti-social behaviour “will be dealt with”.

The statement reads: “Clearly a lot has been discussed over the past week. Wakefield Trinity pride themselves on being an all-inclusive club, where anyone from any sector of life can watch, play and get involved in our great game.

“This is where our focus will and should be.”

The statement adds: “We would remind anyone that wishes to attend that any anti-social behaviour will be dealt with.

“We want everyone to come down and enjoy the game.”
