A Rugby league administrator says violence on the field is now a recurring problem in most suburban competitions here in the Nation’s Capital.
It comes after an official was assaulted and injured during a game at the Hohola Rugby League competition.
Acting President, Darren Kae, says the sour conduct is affecting the majority of supporters who are there for the love of the game.
Four weeks ago, the Hohola Rugby League competition came to a standstill, after a disgruntle player and supporters assaulted a referee; this resulted with a broken arm, which the referee is still nursing after falling off the grand stand.
Acting President, Darren Kae, said such behavior will not be tolerated and the team involved has been banned indefinitely.
The competition was already in the elimination rounds when this incident occurred; this has affected other teams who were supposed to play the elimination rounds.
Unfortunately, this hold up to their season proper continues this weekend due to campaign rallies held by campaigning candidates.
But Kae is adamant the competition will continue next weekend.
Despite the buzz around them, some teams were more than willing to play some friendly footy this afternoon.
EMTV Sports arrived in time to see the Garden Hills Eagles and the Bus Stop Spartans meet for a face off.
The first half saw a dance back and forth as both sides tried their luck at the try lines.
Fresh into the match, and alert, both sides were not able to score any tries.
Before full time, a high tackle from the Spartans gave a penalty to the Garden Hills Eagle.
Going into second half with 2 points to their name, the Eagles landed another try which was converted successfully and brought the scoreline to 8 – nil.
Afterwards, it was a tussle back and forth until full time.
The season proper will continue next week, where knock outs will be made immediately.
