Wests Tigers winger David Nofoaluma has responded to the shocking taunts he experienced during his side’s clash with the Sydney Roosters on Sunday. Nofoaluma was unable to complete the game following a suspected calf injury in the first half, and was brutally sledged when leaving the field in the hands of the trainers.
“Disgraced when coming off injured to hear a roosters fan in the crowd say “Nofoaluma you c#nt. Your a f##king peice of sh#t”. Hope your satisfied!!,” Nofoaluma tweeted.
The 24-year-old received some support from ARL commission chairman Peter Beattie who stated the NRL’s stance on crowd behaviour. “The NRL will not tolerate racism of any kind under any circumstances. End of story,” Beattie tweeted.
Fan abuse has been rife in the NRL after the league banned two Penrith fans for racially abusing Greg Inglis during the Souths clash with the Panthers earlier in the season.
