Leeds Rhinos: Gary Hetherington fined for 'witch-hunt' comment
Leeds Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington has been fined £1,000 by an independent operational rules tribunal.
Hetherington was charged with improper conduct by the Rugby Football League after he called an investigation into claims full-back Zak Hardaker used homophobic language a "witch-hunt".
The investigation into the England international was dropped.
Hetherington has 14 days to appeal against the tribunal's decision.
