In all seriousness all abuse towards referees needs clamped down on.... it is creeping in.

Sorry but I am not buying into this , so the Branch have went from a Zero sanction to £5k with £2k returned if no others similar actions, couple of things here are not right and would appear to be the Branch and Coleraine covering it up, I hope the media keep on this, who paid the hush money, was it to prevent a reputation in the local business community being protectEd, Coleraine have not been humble nor respecting of the rugby community, the Refs have accepted so it moves on, any abuse is wrong, but Coleraine have been Warren Gatland about this, I now have them with a passion and other clubs should make it known, to the ref, keep reffing don't give up, Coleraine don't represent anyone other than people from Warren Gatland

Did they go from zero though? There was a fine originally, albeit suspended, was there not?

BR, stop being so f8cking pedantic FFS, there was a fine, £2000 but suspended ( as the Branch has mostlys done ie fined £2000 but suspended for 12 months without any monies taken) so really there was no actual fine even you would agree that's a fudge, so its now £5K taken up front with £2K being paid back in 2 years if no similar incidents ????? any way

Coleraine i believe have had a coach suspended from the pitchside for abuse (i am open to correction , so it was not a one off they had recent form, it does not matter if it was a Ref, a player or another spectator , what concerns me is the closing of ranks, i hope that this one does not go away.

Even you must think how have they reached that amount from effectively £0. the fact ALL parties would not comment on the apology would indicate a deal was struck and only after media questions to all parties have the IRFU got involved and stated an apology was given, Coleraine still refuse to comment on the apology interesting their PR man would put Finlay to shame his CV as follows:

Zero suggests no liability found Suspended fine suggests otherwise. So less of a jump in position. That was all I was suggesting.

I wonder did Coleraine accept the original fine on the basis it was probably zero in monetary terms, but may not have been so keen to accept the Branch's account of the incident had they known it would become £3k.
