Red exile and now some 'league'

"Great Britain's amateur rugby league under-23s friendly against a France Select in Italy was abandoned after 60 minutes following a mass brawl.
Britain were leading 22-4 in Padova, Italy, when violence erupted.
GB manager Mick Turner said: "This competition is an absolute disgrace. We'll have to think hard about taking part in events like this in future."
Claude Oabolu, coach of the French side, said: "I am desolate. Some of our players are crazy." "

Ah yes. A hooligan's game played by and for hooligans. Still, this would have been a better game than any Rugby Union stuffn nonsense.
