The referee was officiating a match between Amagagasi and Vic Falls Tigers when he sent off a player with a straight red card.

The player didn’t agree with the referee’s decision to send him off the field and retaliated.

The official didn’t back down and fought back, the referee threw a few punches in the direction of the player before the assistant referee and players intervened to stop the fight.
