Castleford Tigers have been blamed for the mix-up which meant them playing in a borrowed strip against Huddersfield in a televised Super League match.

The game at the Shay a fortnight ago was held up after both clubs turned up wearing a similar reserve kit and only went ahead after Halifax produced a set of their own jersey for the Tigers to use.

A Rugby Football League investigation has determined that Castleford failed to implement a directive issued on March 9, instructing them to play in their principal kit against Huddersfield, who were told to use their alternative kit.

The Tigers were fined £500 for breaching RFL operational rules and have 14 days in which to appeal against the decision.
