    Details surrounding the incident, which took place on the north stand, are still relatively unclear with the Bulls waiting on further information from stadium security, but they confirmed to Sport24 on Monday that the perpetrators were kicked out of Loftus and that the franchise adopts a "zero tolerance" approach to crowd violence.
