    Vilimoni Delasau punched a 17 year old fan, Jeremaia Mudunaivalu, after he thought the young man was trying to pickpocket him. Delasau paid out £24 as compensation to the Jeremaia, but the boy will have something to tell his friends, children and grandchildren.

    Well, at least there was a reason for it, no matter how ridiculous. <_<

    I don't think it was a kid. Some fan was taking the **** after the game, allegedly, but that dosn't justify going into a brawl with him. Gareth Thomas also got a fine and temporary ban in the same incident but I don't think he was involved in the fight.

    It was before a game and it was a young lad who basically shouted some sort of abuse. Brennan was an asshole for reacting.

    I remember the Western Mail reporting that it was after the game - although my memory may not be so good.

    Ive just been told it was during a game and the fan was 25 and slagging off Brennans pub?????

    Right. When you say "young lad", I assume you mean somebody my age. :p

    TWM did report that the incident occured after the game. Dunno for what though. There's a picture somewhere of Brennan in the crowd stands and with his fist to the jaw of some guy.

    You mean this picture? He got right up onto the stands. I heard the fan was slagging off his mother.

    Yep that's the one. Nice find. That dude doesn't look 25 either. :D

    You be right about his mother being slagged off.

    I wonder if Delasau incident has been blown out of proportion, is there pictures etc? If not then it could easily be exaggerated!

    The thing is that if you're a professional, you should not react like that on the field

    It's a pretty soft judgement from the magistrate but then again it's not something really deserving of serious punishment.

    Nonetheless, i'm only 20 and i'd only ever punch a seventeen year old under serious provocation. What does one prove by punching someone substantially smaller and younger than them?

    A pretty odd reaction considering the guy was only seventeen. Especially when merely holding the dude would have sufficed if Delasau thought that he was a pick-pocket.

    I'm surprised to know the young chap even got up.
