Violence erupted yesterday at the Varsity Cup rugby game between Shimlas and Madibaz at the University of Free State when protesters clashed with members of the crowd. The match was stopped when students and protesters walked onto the field to draw attention to outsourced workers at the university. Spectators then stormed the field and video footage shows several protesters being assaulted.
Here’s part of the footage in high quality video.

And here’s a longer video, but the quality is poor.
The on-field clashes led to further violence and students rampaged into the night leading to the university suspending academic activities.
UPDATE: here’s closeup footage of arguments on the field just prior to chaos erupting
There’s a btter quality version HERE.
Can anyone figure out what the guy with the camo cap on backwards said at the 28 second mark? Whatever he said seemed to have made the girl really mad.
UPDATE 2: here’s another video of the argument from another angle and video from within the crowd. You can clearly hear what the guy in the camo cap said. Watch from the 2 min mark onward.
