They were both red carded by the law of the game, but they continued the fight after the sanction of game suspension in sin bin. No matter who instigated, who hit first or second, they both need to attend a disciplinary hearing where 'assault' will now be on the table, nevermind that Despatch RFC will also now be pulled into this. They made a mess, and the WP player is one who needs to own up for all parties involved.
Lol "assault". You guys are seriously taking this to far with disciplinary hearings and BS.
It's like non of these "administrators" have ever played a bit of rugby themselves. It's u/19 so school boys not professional level.

Cape Town - Western Province have promised disciplinary action against one of their junior players who was involved in an ugly on-field fight over the weekend.

This comes after shocking video footage emerged of two under-19 players - one from Western Province and one from Eastern Province - involved in a fight during an SA Rugby U19 Championship match in Despatch.

A spokesperson for WP Rugby told Netwerk24 that they strongly condemn the incident and plan on investigating it.

“We’ll follow the correct procedures. As the match falls under the auspices of the SA Rugby Union, there is a disciplinary process that WP and the player will follow. We take foul play and violent behaviour very seriously and an internal disciplinary process will also take place at WP,” the spokesperson said.

The incident took place when WP right wing Christian Ambadiang was tackled by EP fullback Dylan le Roux.

After the tackle, both players can be seen getting into a scuffle (WATCH in the tweet below).

Cameroon-born Ambadiang pushes Le Roux, who responds with a punch to the face that sees members of both sides rushing to stop the altercation.

Once everything has settled down, the referee shows both players a red card, but it doesn't stop there.
The footage shows the two players walking off together and Ambadiang, clearly not happy with having been punched, head-butts Le Roux, who then throws another punch.

EP Rugby president Andre Rademan described the incident as shocking.

“We definitely do not condone it,” Rademan said, while adding that he welcomed WP’s investigation into the incident.

The WP under-19 side won the match at the Despatch Rugby Club 47-18.

Too many soccer players have infiltrated the Administrative positions in the Rugby unions.

It is more a case of keeping the sport safe for everyone. You should do yourself a favour and go pick up a Constitution booklet from a rugby union and one of their clubs.

It is more a case of job creation for administrators to make them seem relevant. Having formal disciplinary hearings for school kids when they had a fight, lol.

Wait, you encourage SA Rugby school’s representatives to take this behaviour over to senior rugby? Here I thought discipline starts at home… I guess horses for courses.

Now you're just being ridiculous and moving the goal post away from my original point.
Yes, discipline starts at home.
Bureaucracy isn't discipline.
Anyone shocked that boys fight is an idiot.
