Referee tackled

NATIONAL Rugby League referee Jared Maxwell was tackled by a spectator on the field after Friday's match between the Brisbane Broncos and Wests Tigers. Police said yesterday they arrested a 25-year-old man and charged him with common assault and entering a playing field without authority. He was released on bail to appear at Campbelltown Local Court on June 17. Maxwell was knocked down from behind after blowing the fulltime whistle in the Broncos' 20-18 win at Campbelltown Stadium in western Sydney. NRL Chief Operating Officer Graham Annesley said a life ban from all league matches was likely on top of any criminal charges.
