VIDEO: Player banned for 10-years for sickening attack on referee

SHARE

The sickening incident occurred during the Newcastle and Hunter Rugby Union Under-19 Grand Final.

Maitland Blacks’ Mark Meafua received the ban for striking referee Niklas Gaal during the match last weekend and the incident was recorded by BarTV Sports.

A few moments earlier, Meafua had been involved in a scuffle after the Blacks players objected to a dangerous lifting tackle by the Wanderers on a Maitland player.

As well as the suspension for "physical abuse of an official" Meafua was found guilty of the red card offence – striking with his elbow – and was issued a 10-match ban for that.

Following the incident Meafua was arrested at his Rutherford home and was subsequently charged with common assault. He is due before a local court in October.

The Newcastle Herald reports Meafua read out a three-page apology letter during a two-hour judiciary hearing this week.

Evidence has also emreged of him kicking an opponent a week before his assault on the referee.
