A brutal attack on a referee Khoder Yaghi by a player has left the official with a broken jaw and other injuries.
The incident took place during a First Grade match between the Padstow Hornets and the Greenacre Eagles at Padstow Park in Sydney, Australia.
In a video that surfaced later, a suspended player was seen rushing towards the referee and assaulting him, punching him in the head and dragging him onto the field.
The referee was left with a bloodied mouth, and it is believed that he suffered a broken jaw and lost some teeth.
The player responsible for the attack has been arrested by the NSW Police, according to report by The Sun.
