Bulldogs won't tolerate repeat

WEST END Rugby League Club president Tamara Levao has vowed to take measures to ensure no repeat of Saturday's under-18 match.

Levao believes it was a one-off isolated incident but she is determined to put processes in place to rectify matters if it is not.

"It's definitely not acceptable," Levao said. "There will be consequences from the club. Obviously the IRL will deal with it. But we as a committee need to sit down and discuss what we do."

That includes dealing with the player involved in the incident and the behaviour of those on the sidelines.

"I believe it is an isolated incident," Levao said. "But if there is something happening there, if we see it is an issue, then it is something we need to rectify.

"We've got some things in the pipeline that might change."

Levao said the club had duty officials at the ground on Saturday but they were not able to be everywhere at once to douse every abusive spectator.
