Responding to CNA’s queries on Tuesday, the Singapore Rugby Union said it was a “regrettable incident” between two players who are friends off the field. It said it could not reveal the names of the players involved.
Singapore Rugby Union’s general manager Sidney Kumar said the Oldham player did not suffer a serious injury.
Cards were issued to the Saints player who kicked the injured Oldham player, as well as those involved in the fight. Singapore Rugby Union has “engaged the club presidents and the players involved”.
“The rugby community is close knit and both sides have expressed their regret that the incident happened. Both players have apologized to each other and are awaiting the judicial outcomes,” he said.
Mr Kumar added that the Singapore Rugby Union has a “comprehensive judicial process which is in line with how world rugby deals with these incidents”.
“Our team of trained lawyers and judicial officials will deliberate and determine the extent of action to be taken,” he said.
“There is no place in rugby for this kind of behavior and the matter will be treated harshly.”
