GROUP 10 planned to act quickly following Sunday’s match between Lithgow and Mudgee.
The game was called off by referee Brett Masters after 37 minutes following four brawls, for which three players were sin-binned.
Group 10 president Linore Zamparini said the Group 10 executive were meeting last night with two representatives each from the Lithgow and Mudgee clubs, along with the referees involved in the match.
“We’ll have the video. We’ll view all the evidence and decide whether anything needs to go to the judiciary,” Zamparini explained.
“We haven’t seen any evidence yet so we don’t if it’s a problem with the ground management, the players or the referees.”
The president was clearly unhappy with what had happened in Mudgee.
“It’s very, very disappointing,” he said.
“It’s not good for the game and it’s not good for our competition.”
Still, Zamparini was confident this was an isolated incident.
Group 10 Referees Association president Mark Edwards did not wish to comment on the matter prior last night’s meeting.
Last night’s meeting would also decide what the match result was.
Lithgow were leading 8-6 when the game was called off but an official match result is still to be confirmed.
There is also the question of whether enough time had been played to constitute a match and Zamparini said he didn’t have the answer.
“That’s a technical thing we’ve got to work through,” he explained.
“Everyone has a different opinion. Some people think you have to play at least three-quarters of a game to make it a game. Hopefully it’s in the constitution.”
