    I was amazed how the white player's team mates reacted!

    TBH if I were refereeing and I'd seen that, I'd have looked the other way and missed any sort of retaliation.

    As for it being self defence - bollocks. He calmly walked over to a guy who was not even aware he was there and assaulted him.

    well - and this is NOT justifying anything! - MAYBE the white player had said something like next time we are in a tackle I'm going to break your neck. Or summat. So it was an attempt to take the threat out before the opportunity arose to manifest the threat.

    Its all very odd at the very least.

    I see the Uni has sacked the coaching staff of the kicker's team. Which may be somewhat extreme, depending on the history involved... and I also note the player wasn't even studying at that university any longer.

    The coaches were sacked because they were playing an unregistered player (which invalidates their insurance).

    Maybe he was threatened in some way?
    or maybe the N word had been used?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Now you sound like a defense attorney.

    Next step is to get the video ruled as inadmissible.

    .
    TBH, there is not a damn thing you can do even if you are watching.

    TBH, the only thing a ref should do is call 911, abandon match, and start writing. and talk to police.

    There also has to be a response from Univ. to CYA somewhat.

    There was some minor pushing as both of the players got up from the tackle. Then at the next stoppage of play the a few second later the player in white bends down to tie is shoe, and the player in black walks over to him and kicks him in the face.

    Moral of the story is don't act like a thug.

    What do you think the kickee learned from this?

    The person who was kicked had to have facial reconstruction surgery involving a plate and pins in his face.
    The matter is now being dealt with by the Police.
