League player gets 15 year ban

A junior rugby league player from Sydney has been given a 15 year ban for his role in a brawl that marred the end of an Under-17 grand final.

The Beacon Hill Bears player was banned and two of his teammates were also suspended for periods of eight and seven years.

A brawl eruted after Avalon defeated Beacon Hill 21-20 last weekend.

“Incidents like these need to be eradicated from our game,” CEO of the NSW Rugby League Dave Trodden told The Manly Daily.

“Junior sport is to be enjoyed by its young participants, not spoilt by inappropriate behaviour

“If there is even just one incident of this type, then it is one too many.

“If there is even just one incident of this type, then it is one too many.

“Our sport does not and will not tolerate it.”

The banned players are not permitted to participate in any organised rugby league competition or activity, including school football, gala days, developments squads, and tournaments in any capacity.
