quinnywinny I would like to thank all those supporters that witnessed and totally ignored the assault on an elderly gentlemen in Rosebine car park. No one is asking you to be a hero but to totally ignore the situation sickens me.
When did this happen? I heard from my friend who was later getting to the ground than I was that there was some trouble in the Rosebine when he was arriving, but he didn't know much more than that as the car park stewards were there by then.
Seriously, this sort of thing can't be allowed to get a foothold into rugby. Friends are always amazed at how friendly and welcoming rugby is when they come along. The good-natured banter between fans is something that we should be proud of, along with the family friendly atmosphere. I hope that the culprits are found quickly and the victim recovers soon.
