6 October: After their team’s loss in the NRL grand final thousands of supporters spilled on to Burwood Rd in Belmore. The situation became tense when a pedestrian sign was ripped out of the ground. Fans jumped up and down on the sign when police forced their way through the crowd. A female police officer was seen confronting one man.
As about 15 officers surrounded the area, the crowd started chanting “F. k the police, f. k the police”.
Officers put their backs to the wall of a restaurant as the fans moved face-to-face with them. The officers took one person’s details and eventually left. No arrests were made.
