My ethnicity is Filipino but grew up here. I don't condone what Kickert did but he has reasons why he did what he did. The filipino player started it during warm-ups.

Here's the clip from DailyMail UK.

I hope I am allowed to post links. If not please delete this post.
There are much bad blood on both sides before Kickert's action. In the second video that I have posted above you will see that Oz no.4, who was flattened, just prior to that was flattening Pinoys at random, they were no where near him with their backs turned. After the penalty had been given there against the Pinoy aggressive there was absolutely no need for Kickert to intervene. I have watched many international games live in Sydney and when bods went down there was no such re-action from their team mate - the refs handle it. Oz no. 4 was whacked in the chest not in the head. He was not stood over like Kickert did.

I saw that clip, I think no 4 was Goulding - it is a bad thing for the sport. My boys are playing basketball now at Mt Druitt NSW instead of league. They are tall but too skinny compared to the islander kids that play league so I just supported them when they wanted to change. They love watching rugby league though instead of basketball.

Anyway, I hope what happened in the international arena doesn't filter down to the local leagues. One is playing in the under 16s GF, the others bowed out in the semi-final.

Whoever was the scribe who changed the title to this thread correct English would be "acid-induced".

Gee FIBA are out a long time over this blue, they are worse than our video refs.

Nice CB 👍 I’m just a noisy father who needs to be told to keep it down sometimes. I easily get carried away with the game. I played for Balmain HS in the 90s when basketball was just starting to gain momentum in Sydney. :D
