Horror scenes as Springbok fans involved in mass brawl in Loftus Versfeld stands

Football solved the problem of fighting between fans a long time ago when they separated stadiums into home and away fans. But South Africa problem have a far more complex issue on their hands now- how do you separate home fans from home fans?

Forget about Australia fans being under attack on Saturday as the Springboks hosted the Wallabies at Loftus Versfeld, the biggest problem seemed to be Bok fans attacking Bok fans.

Perhaps it is the sheer tedium of having to watch the Boks play each week or maybe after years of watching the Boks bully other teams it has rubbed off on the fans, but a mass brawl in Pretoria has been captured on film and shared online.

The video shows one supporter raining down punches on another fan on the floor, and continuing to do so once they both made it back to their feet, all while simultaneously having his shirt ripped off him. These are some shocking scenes, and not what is usually expected or seen at a rugby stadium anywhere in the world.

Take a look at the brawl:

The most bizarre thing was that the Springboks comfortably won that match, so the mind boggles at the thought of what would have happened if they lost.

On the pitch, the Springboks’ focus has been switched to the All Blacks next week, where head coach Jacques Nienaber has added twelve more players that will travel to New Zealand this week. Watch out All Blacks, and on the basis of this, watch out All Blacks fans.

Additional Springbok players travelling to New Zealand:
Forwards: Thomas du Toit (prop), Pieter-Steph du Toit (loose forward), Deon Fourie (utility forward), Steven Kitshoff (prop), Jean Kleyn (lock), Vincent Koch (prop) Frans Malherbe (prop), Bongi Mbonambi (hooker), Trevor Nyakane (prop), RG Snyman (lock), Marco van Staden (flank), Duane Vermeulen (No 8).
