RFL to investigate Million Pound Game crowd trouble

The Rugby Football League (RFL) is to investigate the crowd trouble that marred the end of Saturday's Million Pound Game between Salford Red Devils and Hull KR.

Salford clinched a dramatic 19-18 victory in golden-point extra time to seal their Super League survival, relegating Rovers to the Championship at Craven Park.
