The Western Province rugby union has confirmed that they are looking into the nasty incident that saw two players involved in an ugly brawl after they were red carded in an U19 match.

Two outside backs got in a scuffle after Eastern Province under-19 fullback Dylan le Roux made a legal try-saving tackle on Western Province under-19 winger, Christian Ambadiang.

The Cameroon-born winger appeared to lash out at le Roux before the two got in a scuffle as le Roux held his leg. Ambadiang then pushed le Roux and le Roux punched him, dropping him momentarily.

Once everything had settled down, the referee sent both players from the field, but the nastiness wasn’t over as Ambadiang then headbutted le Roux, causing another big ruckus.

WP went on to win the match 48-17 but the fall out has been large, with footage being shared far and wide on social media.

The Western Province rugby union has promised to take action after an investigation into the incident.

“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,” said a WP spokesman. “We take foul play and violent behaviour very seriously and an internal disciplinary process will also take place at WP.”

    I don't mind the occasional scuffle, don't even mind the occasional punch in the heat of the moment that much. But after it's been sorted out you gotta leave it behind and carry on in a civilised manner. A really poor showing of character particularly by the Western Province winger. Would be interested to get the update on what the consequences will be..!?

    The WP oke looks like he has anger issues... Who punches someone whilst he is tackling you?

      Agree, especially because there where absolutely no issues with the tackle at all. Almost as if he had planned to do that in advance, once he would get the opportunity. You can really wonder what's going on in that bloke's head...
