A man was hit with a £30 ticket after he made fun of the new football-style mascot for the Wests Tigers.
The Wests Storm mascot was introduced on the Saturday night before the match.
The Storm are owned by a football club and their fans were given a chance to interact with the mascot in a mock competition.

The spectator was caught on camera shouting a reference to the new logo of the Tigers, which had been unveiled.
The man was issued with a warning, with police confirming that the man was not wearing a helmet at the time.
The Tigers tweeted the incident as a joke.
“I think it’s a little bit unfair on him.
He should have been more respectful.
It’s a bit like the football world,” Tigers captain Jarryd Hayne told The West Australian.
“We’re not in a football world, but I think they’ve got a bit of a bit out of hand, but they’ve been really cool about it.

We’ll be keeping our eye on that and hopefully he gets a bit more respect from the Wolves,” Wolves chief executive Paul Hagg said.
The West Australians said the Tigers had no further comment on the matter.
