The clashes came after a boy of 18 was allegedly punched during the derby between The Perse and The Leys, in Cambridge.
The sixth-former from £33,000-a-year Leys was said to have pinned down an opponent from £17,000-a-year Perse. A teammate of the trapped player whacked the Leys boy in the face — sparking touchline violence which ended with the police being called.
A source said: “One of the Perse subs didn’t take kindly to his player being pinned down and punched the Leys player, knocking him out. The dad of the Leys player was furious and started getting physical.
“Then other parents started getting involved and it sparked a brawl. A number of people were hurt but I think it was only the lad originally punched that had any substantial injuries.”
A spectator posted yesterday: “A Leys player was attacked totally unprovoked by a Perse student. Not at all how rugby should be played.” Police are probing Saturday’s violence.
