WATCH: Shocking scenes as parent sparks schoolboy rugby brawl

The man was filmed grabbing a Kearsney player, before an opposing player intervened. It escalated into an altercation between players and others as onlookers then had to step in to pull the parent away.

In one social media post it’s said that the “U16 Northwood parent apparently thought his son’s team was cheated”.

It is alleged that the man had first approached the referee to dispute certain decisions. The official can be seen attempting to walk away from the person involved before the matter gets further out of hand.
