‘It won’t be tolerated’: NSWRL stands firm against vicious on-field assaults
Rugby league’s governing body has condemned on-field altercations in community sport that resulted in arrests in the past week.
Three incidents on NSW rugby league fields, include a 39-year-old coach allegedly assaulting a 12-year-old player on the Central Coast.
A rugby league referee at Menindee was allegedly knocked unconscious by a player.

“It can’t be tolerated. It won’t be tolerated.”
