Detailed Report of Incident
At the end of a ruck in midfield, a Newport player charged into a Portland player as the ball was being passed out the back. The Portland player took exception and the two players began with handbags, mostly pushing and shoving but a punch or two from both players. As the players separated and play appeared to be getting back to normal, the Newport second row charged in knocking the Portland player to the ground. I had whistled play dead prior while the handbags were going on and whistled hard again, showing the Newport player that was third man in a yellow card. No further incidents for the remainder of the match.
