And you thought under-10s GAA was bad?
These were the scenes in Kazakhstan at the weekend where an under-10 hockey match descended into an all-out brawl – before a puck was slapped in anger.
Despite the impressions you might have from Borat, it’s not all sweetness, light and house-dwelling cows in the former Soviet state.
The kids there know how to pack a punch too on the evidence of this video from an under-10 hockey game between Kokshetau-Burabay, in the green strip, and Astana at the weekend.
It all kicked off straight from the handshakes after some apparently over-aggressive and, it must be said, rather un-childlike trash-talking from the Astana boys.
