Episode Notes

A 25-year-old man has been charged an alleged attack on a football referee in Sydney last week. The referee is recovering in hospital after three teeth were knocked out and his jaw was broken in three places when allegedly attacked after the amateur game.

Footage of the incident appeared to show that after falling to the ground, the referee was punched at least three times and appeared to be kicked.

“This is one of the worst attacks I’ve ever seen at any sporting event at any level,” one Australian politician said.
