League clubs fined $5000 over brawls
GROUP 10 Rugby League clubs Mudgee Dragons and Lithgow Workies have been fined $5000 after spiteful brawls ended their match prematurely at Mudgee on Sunday.
Group management met at Bathurst League’s Club on Monday night and found both clubs guilty of bringing the game into disrepute, according to reports.
The committee suspended $3000 of the $5000 and determined neither side will be awarded competition points from the abandoned Premier League match.
The match was declared null and void and will not be replayed.
