Worcester are threatening four fans with bans after they shined lasers at Harlequins players during a match last Saturday.

Quins complained that during their 18-16 European Challenge Cup win over the Warriors’ four men in the crowd were attempting to disrupt their kickers.

Images showed a green flash across the ball Quins fly-half Demetri Catrakilis kicked over the posts for the winning penalty at Sixways.

And having identified the culprits on CCTV, Worcester want to find and ban the laser lads.

‘We are working closely with Harlequins and Premiership Rugby to investigate what is a very serious matter,’ said Warriors Operations Director Peter Kelly.

‘We have identified four male spectators who occupied seats in the front row of the central block of the East Stand.

‘Those seats were unsold which suggests that the four men in question had purchased seats elsewhere.

‘We have clear CCTV footage of them which we are making public in the hope that other spectators can help us to identify and trace them.

‘If we can do that, and they are found to have used a laser to distract players, then they can expect to receive a lengthy ban.

‘Warriors subscribe to rugby’s core values, one of which is respect for the opposition. Anyone who behaves in an unsportsmanlike manner is not welcome at Sixways.’
