Rugby is a violent sport, but the violence that took place on the pitch during this rugby match was not part of the game. Mark Meafua, who plays for the Maitland Blacks, has been arrested and charged with assault after striking a referee in the face during a recent match. The 18-year old was receiving a yellow card when he hit the 19-year old ref with an open hand to the head and throat area. Meafua has also received a 10-year ban for his actions. And his team lost the game.
