SPORT BRAWL: Fight breaks out at rugby league game as players clash with fans

Rugby players fight their fans...

Salford apologised for the behaviour of a section of their support after ugly scenes marred 

the end of their win at Huddersfield.

The Red Devils recorded a 26-24 victory over the Giants, but come the final whistle some 

of Salford’s players were seen in the away end of the ground.

It happened as the Salford players went over to applaud their fans.

Now the Manchester club has vowed to find the troublemakers. In a tweet shortly after the 

game ended the club has vowed they will be ‘dealt with’.


The fracas happened as the Salford players went over their fans in the John Smith’s stand.

It’s unclear exactly what sparked the violence, which is unusual at rugby league games. But 

it’s thought a child and possibly players’ family members were being crushed in the melee 

and some of the players intervened to stop it.

No supporters are thought to have been injured.

The injured steward was treated by St John Ambulance personnel at the scene.
