Rugby fans fighting at Magic Weekend event at St. James Park – Video

7 years ago

The Magic Weekend event at St James’ Park saw three Rugby League matches take place over the course of Saturday afternoon and into the night.

Sunday sees three more matches taking place, with the final one kicking off at 5.30pm.

However, there was a different kind of ‘kicking off’ going on during Saturday’s entertainment.

A video appeared on social media, shot by one Rugby League fan, showing a number of spectators fighting.

It appeared to involve Leeds (rugby league) fans, though unclear whether it was with fans of another club or just amongst themselves.

Whilst most people would describe what happened as ‘handbags’ rather than people potentially getting seriously hurt, what irony that this happened with rugby fans at a football venue where fighting inside the stadium is pretty much unheard of these days.

***The person who put the video up on social media, took it down earlier today as it was embarrassing for rugby fans to have even more people seeing it.
