WATCH: Ugly brawl dampens day one of Magic Round


Magic Round has kicked off with yet another disgraceful fistfight in the Suncorp Stadium stands.

The Canterbury Bulldogs secured a 16-6 win over the Newcastle Knights, but it was the action taking place off the field that has taken centre stage.

Queensland police have reported to that three of those involved received penalty infringements for disorderly conduct on a licensed premises and were escorted from the stadium.

While one man received medical attention, there were no assault charges laid.

Unfortunately, this is not the first altercation between fans in season 2022, as two separate incidents occurred in the Anzac Day Round.


It raises questions about the strength of the punishments and whether an eviction and fine are enough of a deterrent for NRL fans.

The following match saw the Broncos make it four-in-a-row with a dominant 38-0 win over the Sea Eagles.

Tom Trbojevic appeared to be in discomfort with a knee injury, however, he played out the full 80 minutes.

His brother Ben Trbojevic, however, was not as lucky and copped an AC joint injury.

It leaves Manly 5-5 before their huge clash with the Eels, while the Broncos move to a positive ledger of 6-4 ahead of their clash with the Knights.
