The match between Muʻa Saints and Fasi Maʻufanga Vikings rugby league teams had to be stopped after brawls broke out between players and fans on Saturday 18.

Both teams were unbeaten before the match and when officials decided to call the game 20 minutes before full time Muʻa Saints leads 20 – 6.

The trouble started when a Viking player  landed a dangerous high tackle on a Muʻa Saints player, according to Talaki Newspaper.

Within a couple of seconds nearly every member of both sides was involved in a full-on mass brawl, with so many punches thrown it would be impossible to count.

Their supporters also got involved before the referee Tei Tahituʻa could be able to bring it under control.

The paper said both teams would face an executive committee final decision against their behaviour this week.
