A late tackle that left a football player in the bloodstream led to an all-in fight during a family-friendly rugby competition on Friday.

Roosters star Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, 30, delivered the battle to Newcastle Knight & Kalyn Ponga during the team's game in Newcastle during the native round game.

Waerea-Hargreaves launched his much smaller opponent, seconds after Ponga, 21, kicking the ball over the field.

The great Roosters player could be seen by raising his arm and hooking Ponga before the pair crashed to the ground.

Waerea-Hargreaves was not penalized during the match, but on Saturday it was announced that he would receive a one-week suspension for the stunt that immediately ended up in an all-in fight.

Teammates immediately plunged in and hurried to Ponga's defense while dragging Waerea-Hargreaves from the injured player.

Both teams were locked up in an all-in fight with teammates from both sides trying to break the fight.

Meanwhile, an immobile Ponga was lying on the field when the first aid officer treated him.

Finally, the 21-year-old pulled himself on his shoulders and blood flowed from his nose.

The injured player was on the bench while the offending Waerea-Hargreaves received no disciplinary action despite the hymns of spectators to put him off.

Rugby league referee Ben Cummins told the two team captains that he saw nothing wrong with the tackle.

& # 39; We have no problem with the tackle, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; It is clear that it is just ground contact – but what I will not have is that players come in and start a scuffle.

& # 39; If that happens again, someone sits down … there is nothing wrong with that (tackling). & # 39;

Identity Rugby competition Phil Gould spoke on Channel Nine and said that Waerea-Hargreaves would not have continued to play that game if he had made that tackle in the rougher days of the game.

& # 39; In another era, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves would leave in an ambulance, & # 39; said Gould.

& # 39; If you've done that to another young player in Newcastle, you won't get away with it. & # 39;

Despite the rosters' tackle, Newcastle remained challenging and won the game with a 38-12 win – their first win against the team in five years.
