A Russian Beach Rugby Championship match spiraled into a beach brawl involving both sides when a Dagestan national team player flicked sand into the face of an opponent from local Moscow side ‘Slava’.

The match took place on the first day of the championships at the ‘Dynamo’ Center for Beach Sports in the Russian capital and was tied at 5-5 when a Dagestani player tackled a Slava player to the ground.

Despite the tackle looking pretty standard, trouble quickly ensued when the Slava player apparently swung an elbow in the direction of his opponent.

In footage filmed from the stands, the two players square up and after a brief confrontation, the Dagestani player can be seen hurling a handful of sand in the face of his Slava counterpart.
