Anyone who has played touch rugby will know that it can be quite a highly charged game

In the full contact sport, players can vent their frustration by tackling the opposition but the touch variation often becomes annoyingly passive aggressive with comments being muttered and cynical play creeping in until everyone's anger boils over.

That appears to be what happened during the The Beach Rugby Wales touch rugby tournament over the weekend. There were two different brawls that saw four teams expelled from the competition as security and police had to intervene to separate the teams.

The video below shows just how each game descended into aggressive chaos.

Not your average day at the beach, for sure.
