A friendly game between Leeds United’s Under-23 team and Welsh side Rhyl FC ended in ugly scenes on Tuesday night after a ridiculous brawl between the players.
The incident was apparently sparked by a late tackle by Leeds’ Bryce Hossanah. However, the Championship club were reported to be infuriated by a number of dangerous challenges by their opponents throughout the game.

No doubt there’ll be rather serious repercussions for all those eejits involved. It was a bloody friendly, lads!
