“The rugby community is very united and both parties have expressed regret that the incident occurred. Both players have mutually apologized and are awaiting the legal outcome,” he said.
Mr Kumar added that the Singapore Rugby Union has a “a comprehensive legal procedure which is consistent with the way in which the world of rugby deals with these incidents.
