For those that missed it, the fight between tigers and the raiders U20's on the weekend. Check out #19 for the Tigers. SBW's new opponent? Mass sending offs in the end.

Have to admit that in my playing years if there'd been a throw a punch you're off rule, I'd have spent most of my time on the sidelines.

A rumble is a rumble but the fuckwit that couldn't control himself at the end and kept trying to go on with it needs to be sat down for a few weeks. Embarrassed himself and his club. If that was a Warriors player I would want him to be stood down until he grew up.

from what I could see the next opponent for SBW should be the Canbera 13 he threw more punches and landed them than anyone else, mind you Nathan Brown musta had a good chin cause while they were holding him he wasn't able to defend himself. Figure theres also a fair bit of viking in that boy, the more you hit him the angrier he got the more he wanted to fight.[DOUBLEPOST=1372033702][/DOUBLEPOST]

hes just lucky hes not a warriors player - the judiciary woulda stood him down for the entire season. Anyone else remember the punch up that rolled into the cheerleaders?

SBW won't fight ever again. His boxing career is over.

is it, I thought (well someone said) that he wasn't playing in the world cup because he had already committed to a fight over Christmas

I feel sorry for Nathan Brown, of course you are going to see red when you are being held and someone keeps punching you. I can see how it happens in the heat of the moment but anyone punching someone who is being restrained should get a far stronger punishment.
But agree Brown went on too long at the end and made an idiot of himself

i remember being in a few games in the same situation as number 19s team mate. when the loose unit starts throwing at their own team mates in an uncontrollable rage. i remember playing rugby at school and my hooker started throwing haymakers in the scrum, i grabbed him and he started going at me. he got banned for that

Back in my high school days, I'd play 1st VI hockey in the mornings for the school in the morning and then senior reserve in the afternoons. Our Seniors goalkeeper was a bit of a maverick - then again, so I was, the strikers from one of the other high school teams refused to come into the shooting circle when they knew I was playing against them in goal... but that's another story.

Anyway, our Seniors goalkeeper had perfected an illegal slide tackle which was pretty undetectable from a legal one - just much more effective and the refs never picked up on it cos he did it so quickly. Well, one day he brought down an opposition forward who took an objection to how Jeff tackled him and took a swing at him with his stick. What he forgot, in the heat of the moment, is that a hockey goalkeeper has two different sort of gloves - the left hand is designed to stop the ball in flight (or, in this case, stop a stick being swung at Jeff's head) while the right hand glove is design to protect the knuckles of the hand holding the stick (or, in this case, knock out cold the guy having a swing a Jeff). Nothing the refs could do to Jeff because was only protecting himself and they saw nothing wrong with his tackle.

Played hockey at school myself, hated watching it but loved playing it, our principal at that time represented NZ, Bruce Rosemergy, he's still heavily involved in the hockey scene based at Innes Common in Hamilton now days, so amongst all the usual netball, rugby, soccer, league.... there was hockey! Never got into it or played it seriously as yourself more socially but I seen some pretty vicious whacks and hits with sticks and hockey balls! sheesh cringe material just thinking of the blood that was spilt without protective gear in those days, mean collision sport, loved the speed, out in the open spaces and physicality aspect, helped with league.

One of the most cringe worthy things I've every seen on a hockey field was when we went across to St Pauls in Hamilton for a sports day. For some reason, their goalkeeper wasn't wearing his box and was unfortunate struck in a very unfortunate area of his body. The last I saw of him, he was been carried of the field with blood pouring out from his shorts. I'd say if he every played hockey as a keeper ever again, the first bit of equipment he'd make sure was in place was his box/abdomen protector.

Yep seen a fair few bruises, miscued whacks with the stick, black eyes, cut lips, cut faces, poor guy those hits in the private regions are the worst, makes your eyes water just thinking of that, bloody ahhh!, can be a very brutal and painful sport

I got a hockey story even, when I first met the Mrs she played, this shit is easy I said to her, so with a couple of her mates we had a wee play about, the Mrs comes at me swinging hard, being the agile league player I was, I attempt to jump over her stick nek minnit on the ground with a ballon for an ankle..:D

So how many got marched at the end of that scuffle? I thought at least 5 or 6 may go with this new rule, but can't see how the refs would have been able to find them all without reviewing the tape repeatedly.

shh you stop tryin to get back to the subject in hand, more of the stories of girls with sticks beating the shit out of future husbands.

Never played hockey, don't think indoor counts, anyway. only story I have similar is a windsurfing one where my mates carbon fibre mast snapped in half during the landing of a jump, the jagged bit then cut through his wetsuit and politely removed his nuts for him. Modern medicine is wonderful hes even fathered a kid since then.

The TV coverage I saw I think 3 were sent off, maybe another 2 sin binned. Yeah, the refs were sending them off in pairs!

Here we go:

Four players involved in Saturday night's Holden Cup brawl face a combined total of 14 matches on the sidelines.

Kyle Lovatt (Tigers) facing 2 matches, Tahakilu Pangai (Raiders) 5, Nathan Brown (Tigers) 3, and Mitchell Barnett (Raiders) 4.

Patrick Mago (Raiders) also faces a 3 match ban for a shoulder charge in that game.
