Sydney, Sept 2: A latest incident involving rugby player Anthony Watts biting another player on the penis during a match is being investigated, after the opposing Bilambil player refused to make an official complaint following the conclusion of the preliminary final at Tugun.
According to news.com.au, a number of players were involved in the melee, which was sparked by troubled Tugun player Anthony Watts pushing a Bilambil player.
The entire incident was placed on report in the 39th minute by the referee but the player who made the biting allegation later chose to not pursue claims with league officials, the report said.
However, the footage of the incident will be reviewed and charges will be laid if there is sufficient evidence, which could lead to suspension ahead of Sunday’s grand final between Tugun and Southport at Pizzey Park, the report added.
Only one camera is used to record Bycroft Cup games, meaning it will be difficult for conclusive evidence to be found without a supporting statement, the report further said. (ANI)
