Cape Town - A brawl reportedly erupted in a Western Province club rugby match at the weekend.
According to TimesLIVE, two Villager players were beaten up before their match against Violets in Cape Town on Saturday.
Villager president Bossie Clarke said his players were attacked by four men, but did not know what had caused the confrontation.
Clarke, a former Western Province wing, said they could not call off the match because they were playing for promotion from the Western Province Super League B to the Super League A.
“I am going viral on this‚ I am telling you right now‚" said Clarke.
"I am very upset with the Western Province Rugby Union. They tell us not to go to the media and they do nothing about it.”
Violets could not be reached for comment.
The disruption did not appear to affect Villager on the field as they went on to thump Violets 45-17.
