One woman could not believe her ears as she watched Moldgreen Rugby League take on Normanton Under-15s at the weekend.
As she, Jenna Brough, posted on Twitter, she heard another woman use foul and abusive language against the referee, who himself was just 15 years of age.
The community game can only survive if such young, aspiring officials continue to follow their dream, but outbursts such as these from parents are disgusting.
See the whole tweet here:
Been to watch @MoldgreenRL u15s today against Normanton Rugby , walked away appalled after a female supporter From Normanton gave so much grief and disrespect the the 15years old ref, you should be banned from our game for that behaviour, your poor son having that to listen to.🤬
