  • Description

    The final of the Australian Rules football competition in Sydney on Sunday (19 September) erupted into a brawl.

    SYNOPSIS: The final, which was between East Sydney and North Shore, had just begun when the brawl erupted.

    Thirty-six players quickly became involved, and the referees were powerless to stop the fighting.

    Australian rules referees don't have the power to send players off. They can only report them to a tribunal. In this match, three were reported.

    The game continued relatively peacefully. Here North Shore takes a free kick. The team then continued attacking, but East Sydney claimed a mark in the goal square - and went on to win by 150 points to 73.
