WATCH: 10 Year Ban Over Rugby Referee Attack

A Maitland rugby player has paid a heavy price for hitting a referee in the face during last weekend's local under 19's grand final in Newcastle.

Mark Meafua was facing a life ban from the sport, but has instead copped a ten year ban after pleading guilty at the NHRU judiciary last night.

The 18 year old read out a three page apology letter during the two hour hearing.

Meafua still has to front court next month, after being charged with common assault.
