Keighley player coach Paul march has received a stadium ban after verbally abusing match officials in a game against Leigh.

An RFL Operational Rule Tribunal has imposed a two-month suspension meaning March is prohibited from entering any stadium in which Keighley Cougars are playing until July 8, 2014.

The sanction was handed down after March was found guilty of improper conduct and breaching the game’s Respect Policy following comments made to the match referee at the end of the Keighley Cougars v Leigh Centurions Kingstone Press Championship fixture on March 9 2014.

March pleaded not guilty.

The offence took place whilst March was serving a four-match suspension as a player for questioning the integrity of a match official following a Championship fixture against Doncaster in February.
