A fan at the Brisbane Broncos vs Canterbury Bulldogs Anzac round game has been bashed in the stands, allegedly because he was yelling during the moment of silence held before kickoff.

Two videos taken at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night show a man in a Bulldogs jersey repeatedly punching the man, who was wearing a Broncos jersey, while other fans look on.

A witness who posted one of the videos on twitter also tweeted in a separate post: ‘So the guy who yelled out during the moment of silence was a Broncos supporter and got absolutely DECKED by a dogs supporter.’

The footage shows the Bulldogs fan arguing with the man before hitting him in the face with his right hand, causing him to stumble backwards and sit on the edge of a seat.

The Broncos fan then gets up and is hit with another right hand to the face, making him fall forwards, at which point he’s then hit several more times by the Dogs fan.

He’s then pushed backwards by the Dogs fan and a second man in a Broncos jersey, falls back over the seats behind him and is yelled at by several other furious fans and repeatedly told to ‘p*** off’.

Several people at the game took to Twitter to complain that a fan or fans were yelling during the minute’s silence.

A fan who posted one of the two videos to Twitter alleged in a separate message (pictured) that the man had refused to observe the minute's silence

‘I hope they found that moron at Suncorp and kicked him out. How hard is it to be respectful?’ asked KC2022iseeyou.

‘There’s always 1 d***head who yells out during the minutes silence,’ wrote G’sHPM.

‘Someone find those yobbos yelling during the silence and boot them out for good. Disgraceful,’ added The NRL Roast.

Failing to observe the minute’s silence to commemorate the sacrifices of Australian diggers is, needless to say, highly offensive.

The tradition of remembering the fallen with a period of silence was first suggested by Melbourne World War One veteran and journalist Edward George Honey, who put the idea forward while living in London in 1919.

It’s now a feature of all major sporting clashes held on or around Anzac Day in Australia and is usually solemnly observed.
