The people who invaded the nib Stadium during the Force's match against the Crusaders have been banned from the venue and charged.

The people who invaded the nib Stadium during the Force's match against the Crusaders have been banned from the venue and charged.

The Force's shock 16-14 victory over the seven-time champions was marred by a few spectators running onto the pitch which has resulted in the Crusaders calling for a SANZAR investigation into the incident.

The Force sent out a statement on Tuesday explaining that all of the offenders have been banned from the stadium for five years and will also have to explain their actions in court.

"RugbyWA is embarrassed by this disruption at a Force home match and does not condone this behaviour.

"This was unacceptable behaviour from a small minority of attendees at the venue and is the first instance of such behaviour at a Force home match in eight years of Super Rugby. Regardless, it will not be tolerated.

"One offender has been charged with trespass while others have been summoned to appear before Perth Magistrates Court. Each offender has also received a five-year ban from the venue," the statement read.

The Perth frnachise said that they are working with stadium management to improve the level of security at the venue.

"We have received a series of recommendations from nib Stadium regarding the review of security measures and reaction to such incidents. RugbyWA will look to endorse and work with nib Stadium to implement these measures as a means of ensuring such incidents do not happen again."
