A FIGHT in a match between Brothers and Wallabys has resulted in four players being reported this afternoon. 

The fight broke out when a Wallabys player remonstrated with Brothers captain Brent Crisp for manhandling one of his teammates in a tackle. 

Players all jumped in and the referees could do nothing to stop punches being thrown. 

Despite the aggression building up between the two teams most players attempted to stop the fight and only a few punches were thrown. 

The Marley Brown game was called off once the fight broke out with four minutes left on the clock. 

Tempers then eased but Wallabys' Zack Price continued to provoke Brothers' player Robert Nona despite being separated.

The match itself was physical but Wallabys lacked a few players in key positions to match it with Brothers.

Brothers ran in try after try in the first 60 minutes of the match getting to 46 points before Wallabys ran a try in.

Jackson McEwan, Patrick Sanderson and Brent Crisp all scored two for Brothers while Justin Cridland, Robert Nona and Lachlan Tanzer scored one each.

Wallabys centre Dallin Edwards showed plenty of heart, making four tackles in a row after the Brothers received the kick-off from their last try.

After that set Wallabys forward Mike Browne returned the kick, breaking four tackles to get them down the field.

A few plays later, hooker Linton Price refused to be tackled, dragging three Brothers players with him as he ran over the line.

They scored one more try through Mike Browne before the fight.

After the match, it looked like the fight would continue outside the grounds, but nothing escalated outside as the crowd watched on. 

Gladstone Rugby League confirmed two people from each team had been reported, but wouldn't say who until the players had been notified.

The players could miss out on the semi-finals next week.
