It has been reported that a Facebook post exploded into a full-blown fist fight between parents at a children’s netball game in NSW.
The fight unfolded at a junior netball final at the Equex Centre in Wagga Wagga on Saturday afternoon.
According to local media reports, three men came to blows at the family-friendly event shortly after midday.
A man holding a five-day-old baby is alleged to have triggered the violence by spitting in a second man’s face.

The second man then allegedly lashed out and attacked the father who was holding the newborn baby.
Witnesses recalled hearing the father say: “I’m holding a baby. Stop!” before a third man came to his aid.
Witnesses told the Daily Advertiser the man could be heard saying: “This is all over one thing I posted on Facebook”.
The man who was punched to the ground was treated at the scene by paramedics.
Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the assault.
Investigations into the incident are continuing.
