Two security guards injured at rugby league game by “unacceptable behaviour”

The NRL season is up and running it was an exciting start.

The first game to start the season ended in golden point extra time as Harry Grant proved the hero.

Meanwhile Champions Penrith Panthers were stunned by Brisbane Broncos and Herbie Farnworth in a 13-12 win.

However, it wasn’t all good.

The New Zealand Warriors defeated Newcastle Knights 20-12 and in the backdrop of the game two security guards were injured by pitch invaders according to Stuff.

Now the Stadium boss has made a statement slamming the behaviour of fans who injured the duo.

“It was a fantastic evening, and it was in the last few minutes of the game that we had a number of people enter the field. For us, completely unacceptable behaviour,” Sky Stadium boss Shane Harmon told Stuff.

“But it’s clear in looking at the [security video] footage that it was planned and coordinated. This was planned in advance, I’m sure alcohol potentially had a part to play, but that should not be an excuse.”

“He’s fine, we’ve checked in on him today but it’s completely unacceptable behaviour so we are investigating potential assault there as well,” Harman said, adding that the pitch invaders appeared to have been working in unison, “entering from a similar position all at the same time”.
