NRL riot: official with broken shoulder after bottle attack

TWO men have been charged with assault after violence erupted at the NRL grand final rematch between the Canterbury Bulldogs and Sydney Rabbitohs at Sydney's Olympic Stadium.

An NRL official was taken to hospital with a suspected broken shoulder after being struck by a bottle thrown by Canterbury fans as the Good Friday showdown with South Sydney ended amid ugly scenes.

A last-gasp penalty from Bryson Goodwin in front of the posts sealed a dramatic 18-17 win for the Rabbitohs.

Canterbury was so incensed by the decision to award a penalty, after James Graham caught the leg of Adam Reynolds as he tried to charge down a field goal attempt in the final minute, that prop David Klemmer verbally abused referee Gerard Sutton and was sin-binned.

Reynolds will spend several months on the sidelines after the tackle caused a serious leg injury.
