Several punches were thrown between the pair before nearby spectators and security moved in to break-up the melee
The man who came under attack retaliated, before several punches were thrown between the pair.
A man nearby wearing a jersey of the opposing Wests Tigers team moved in to attack the man captured throwing the initial punch as he was forced to back away.
A security guard also moved in to separate the pair. Surrounding spectators were heard on camera yelling out ‘boys, boys, sit down’.
It is not clear what sparked the violent altercation, which came as the Eels defeated the Tigers.
