Another ugly moment in Rugby League’s colourful history erupted on Sunday afternoon when parents brawled at an under-12’s’s match following alleged racial abuse of a young player by a spectator.
According to reports in the Sydney Morning Herald, a fight occurred during a game between Mascot and South Eastern Rugby League clubs at Heffron Park after a young player was called a “black c…!”

Souths Juniors president Keith McGraw said parents could be blacklisted from attending games and could have their children de-registered. - Read More, Here
