    Default Let's ban an 11 year old for life

    My facebook feed is full of people saying that we need to get tough and ban this 11 year old from rugby for life. I don't know what is worse; that an 11 year old would hit a referee, or those that are saying he should be banned from rugby for life.

    Actually I do know, it is the adults talking about punishing a person for life for something they did as an 11 year old. What is the world coming to?

    Sounds like there is a huge problem. I think they need to look at the home for reasons that's happened.

    Life ban commuted to 12 months after good behaviour.

    Everyone happy?

    When a 12 year old and a 13 year old are charged with aggravated robbery and murder, it makes an 11 year old hitting a referee pale into insignificance somewhat!!

    I wonder whether the kid has .... "issues".

    I know one kid who used to play in an Youth side, who had behavioural problems (never hit a Ref though) and although everyone says he was Ok, I am convinced there is something wrong there.

    South Auckland itself has issues as a region. I don't think you can fairly single out their youth rugby programme for special attention.
