WATCH: Shocking fight between WP and EP U19 players

2018-10-02 08:37

Cape Town - Shocking video footage has emerged of two U19 players - one from Eastern Province and one from Western Province - involved in a fight over the weekend. 

The incident took place when the WP right wing Christian Ambadiang was tackled by EP fullback Dylan le Roux. 

After the tackle, both players can be seen getting into a scuffle. 

Ambadiang pushes Le Roux, who responds with a punch to the face that sees members of both sides rushing to stop the altercation. 

Once everything has settled down, the referee shows both players a red card, but it doesn't stop there. 

The footage shows the two players walking off together and Ambadiang, clearly not happy with having been punched, head-butts Le Roux, who then throws another punch. 

The incident has been shared on Twitter and Facebook and does not paint a good picture for either union. 

WP went on to win the SA Rugby U19 Championship match 47-18 at the Despatch Rugby Club.
