    Newlands fan fight clip emerges

    Cape Town - Two video clips have revealed how a woman was injured as she tried to stop a fight during the recent Stormers and Crusaders match at Newlands, it was reported on Monday.

    VIDEO 1: Fan fight at Newlands

    VIDEO 2: Fan fight at Newlands


    The beginning of one clip shows a woman trying to intervene and reason with the hostile spectators at the Easter weekend match, according to the Cape Argus.

    The fight escalates within seconds and at least eight men can be seen throwing punches, with one burly man punching from behind.

    The burly man is seen hitting the woman in the face as she tries to stop the fighting by pushing him away. The impact of the blow sees her body bouncing back and her head hits a chair.

    She was later put in a neck brace and a stretcher used to carry her away.

    ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson told the newspaper they had been at the scene but that she was unable to give details on the severity of the incident.

    Western Province Rugby spokesperson Howard Kahn said he was aware of the video clips but unable to comment.

    Last week, the Stormers were booed as they exited their team bus before the match.

    Western Cape sports MEC Ivan Meyer was previously quoted in the newspaper as saying he had proposed strict new measures to deal with unruly sporting fans.

    He proposed more security at rugby venues, a year-long ban for unruly fans and CCTV cameras to monitor the crowd, identify bad behaviour and stop potential confrontations before they escalated.
