Rugby club has been charged £5,000 due to abuse

Coleraine Rugby Club has been fined £5,000 by Ulster rugby authorities after a female referee was verbally abused at the club last season.

The referee, who was the target of sexist, verbal abuse from the touchline, is understood to be Grainne Crabtree.

She is a former City of Derry player.

Rugby referees refused to officiate at Coleraine’s home matches after the incident in March, but have now agreed to end their protest.
