Saracens vs Munster interrupted due to huge brawl sparked by medic and Jamie George

Saracens v Munster Rugby - Heineken Champions Cup Round 4

Munster face potential reporting over allegations that their team doctor Jamie Kearns had made a remark about rivals Saracens’ hooker Jamie George’s weight.

The alleged weight jibe from the visitor's doctor Jamie Kearns sparked a 30-man brawl in which is currently being investigated.

Losing 6-3 at the time of the incident, Saracens managed to stage a comeback to secure the victory.

Commenting on what had transpired at pitch-side, Mark McCall said, as per The Sun: “We need to decide what we’re going to do.

“From what I know, something pretty bad was said at Jamie. He wouldn’t have reacted that way otherwise.”

McCall went onto state that: “What was said wasn’t good at all – it started a brawl. Owen Farrell got penalised for running into the melee, but I saw 29 other people run into it.

“It was a strange penalty to give and it was instigated by a member of the staff who said something horrible to one of our players.

“We’ll take our time to decide whether we do anything.”

Jamie Kearns is reportedly thought to have apologised for the horrific scenes afterwards. It is also said that tournament bosses are under pressure to take action against the Irish and put steps in place to ensure that an incident such as this does not happen in future.

Munster boss Johann van Graan claimed: “I don’t know what happened. There were a lot of people involved which wasn’t nice to see.

“We will look into it. I won’t speculate on it. So many things happen in a game of rugby – but you don’t want to see a fight.

“We missed the penalty at 6-3 – if it had been 9-3, it would have given momentum for us.”

McCall later added that: “It’s a game that took a lot of winning, because the team we became in the last 20-25 minutes is the team we want to be.

“We were predictable. There was another gear to go and we found that in the last 25 minutes.”
