Updated: VIOLENCE AT THE POOL

Sunday, August 29, 2010, 8:15

It was a pity for Maltese sport, in particular for water polo, to witness the deplorable scenes that played out at the National Pool at Tal Qroqq on Saturday evening.

Ranier Scerri's flying kick at Dr. Stefan Camilleri

Neptunes were facing Balluta neighbours San Giljan in their penultimate game of the BOV First Division water polo league. Tension was already very high when, a week ago, Neptunes had won a protest against San Giljan for the latter’s inclusion of ineligible players in the Under 14 league. This led to a showdown at the Neptunes pitch which practically set the stage for what happened during today’s game.

The game itself was a very balanced affair till halfway through the fourth session when Neptunes managed to pull away by three goals and win the encounter 16-13. Both sets of players played aggressive water polo with San Giljan opting for press tactics to stifle Neptunes’ attacks. Their tactics worked until the last few minutes of the game when Neptunes managed two quick successive goals through left-hander Stellini to send the Reds into a final game showdown with Sliema with a two point advantage. San Giljan’s performance today was a far cry from their previous two outings against Neptunes in which they were trounced 15-7 and 17-8.

But chaos erupted between one of Stellini’s goals and another. San Giljan goalkeeper Dean Camilleri, who at the time was on the bench, was expelled and was walking towards the changing room. At this point San Giljan’s Ranier Scerri was seen running towards the Neptunes bench, only to be stopped in his tracks by Camilleri. It seemed that those on the Neptunes bench provoked the two, and Camilleri rushed towards them in anger, only to be stopped behind the goalpost by Neptunes doctor Stefan Camilleri. Scerri raced towards Dr Camilleri and gave him a flying kick in his side while Dean Camilleri tried to restrain him.

In the mean time, the Neptunes’ players were trying to restrain Stevie Camilleri from getting involved in the fight and assistant coach Tony Camilleri was seen trying to prevent Karl Galea and Scerri from making further advances but his efforts were in vain as he fell to the ground, only to manage to calm Galea down a short while later. Dean Camilleri and Stevie Camilleri were close to coming to blows, but somehow this was avoided by the other Neptunes players who kept both players apart.

The police presence on the pool deck at this particular point consisted of just two officers who seemed at a loss on how to deal with the situation.

Ranier Scerri hurls a full plastic bottle

Things started to calm down a bit and Camilleri, Scerri and Galea were going back to the San Giljan side but Scerri then proceeded to hurl two full plastic bottles at the Neptunes supporters. At the same time, San Giljan’s Edward Aquilina was seen trying to calm down Stevie Camilleri, the match’s top scorer (6 goals), who throughout all the match was the target of the San Giljan supporters and players.

Referee Sciriha was also visibly very upset about the whole fiasco, and was very vocal with the two helpless police officers on the pool deck. ASA president Austin Sammut, was once again the target of the San Giljan faithful during the game and after, as some heated arguments broke out in the common area beside the bar, with San Giljan president Daniel Aquilina helping to bring some calm to the situation.

The players then jumped into the pool to play the remaining seconds of the game. After the final whistle, Dean Camilleri and Ranier Scerri, both coaches of the San Giljan Under 14 team, once again went towards the Neptunes bench in defiance, while also threatening Neptunes supporters in the stands. By this time a couple more officers had made it to the pool deck and four mobile squad cars converged on the scene to bring everything to a halt.

While we await the reactions of the clubs and the ASA on today’s events, we will keep you informed if any new details come to light.

    The above are precious photos which might be needed in the future. Three of the San Giljan players featured, Dean Camilleri, Ranier Xerri and Karl Galea must not have been in their senses when they created those horrendous scenes. And what happened to Pierre Borg? TV pictures show he went freaking too! Fejn wasalna? So we have THREE coaches involved in this fracas. To reform San Giljan must therefore change their coaching staff for the future. I wonder whether Marco Risso will accept to coach them once again. And Dr Daniel Aquilina MUST think twice before continuing to lead this club.

    Just watched Man Up+ … one thing that both this website and Man Up didn’t mention is what Pierre Borg did.

    Did you see him infringing the rules and rushing towards the Neptunes side?

    Did you see him kissing Dean Camilleri and hugging him instead of trying to calm him down?

    Jien sewwa rajt?? Jew qed nohlom???

    stevie started everything when ‘he was not swimming’, plz explain how? he was sitting across the pool on the neptunes bench when ranier sparked it all off by running across the pool (plz dont tell me he was also provoked by stevie, even though he did not play and had no contact at all with stevie)….ejja xbin stop making a fool of yourself…..lemme guess stevie also insulted pierre borg during the game ….. or did he insult him in a previous life……the more the try to justify the SG team’s actions the more you look like fools……

    Ohh i see, i am the empty one?! :O min fuq…thanks for clearing this all up mela, i was really confused……the decision made in court and the asa will decide who was right or wrong, but just for a sneak preview…. SG (i.e. comittee and most REASONABLE fans) have already accepted that it was SG players who started it all off….shame you can’t be considered one of them

    getalife Reply:

    you seem very mature yourself using terms such as ‘cry baby’ , “loser” and commenting on the size of his head.i doubt very much that he would retreat for some reason he jus doesnt seem the type esp because he stands a gd foot above them and is quite intimidating.and yes you prob could call him a kiesah but who wouldnt be in his position. his is over six foot tall ,well built , great at what he does and is looked up by many.if this adds up to being a loser in your books than may our country have more losers and less winners

    waterpolo fan Reply:

    pfffffffffffff it seems that you are finally agreeing that stevie sparked when his father was being attcked by SG players and a few seconds later put up the white flag and kept to his side . With regards to Pierre Borg I think he managed to get away with it, but know that he was clearly seen in the clip on net Kissing dino on the head and running all the way to the neptunes side and having to be restrained by a group of six etc, I expect that he should be charged in court accordingly.

    I condemn all sorts of violence in sports however I would like to point out that perhaps your article and phots are rather biased. How could it be that none from the other side were published in such game! I happened to be watching the under 16 Sirens VS Neptunes match a few weeks ago at sirens pitch, when neptunes were winning everything was smooth but once Sirens turned the cards round in the last session and Jordie Camillieri was expelled by refree DeRaefaele abuse and threats were heard from all over the pitch, the player himself was really misbehaving enough to get the full attention of his supporters. I even witnessed one wll know female Neptune supporter (best not to mention names) throw a bottle of water to referree DeRaefaele and Caruana with another to follow from another supporter. Both bottles landed close to ASA table but none of this was reported. To the writer of this article I tell him to get fact right, that once again I condemn what happens there is always two sides of the story and one side being published. I rest my case.

    [Sportinmalta] Thank you for your comment, and like everyone else who has commented on this subject, you have a right to you own opinion which we respect.

    :@ Sportsmalta – I’m curious to know who wrote this article, can you please advise, thank you in advance.

    [Sandro Micallef - Editor] The article was written by myself and is based on numerous conversation with people who were present at the national pool, the police and also members of the press who were on the pool deck. This website has provided a forum for all supporters to express their opinions, be it in favour of San Giljan, Neptunes or otherwise, and all comments were published… therefore your point that this website is biased holds no water (excuse the pun).

    Thank you Sandro, its good to know it was written by you however I stand by what I wrote but thank you and as you said and I quote ‘it is always a matter of opinion which I respect’.

    St.Julian's supporter Reply:

    So what this person is saying is right as I think you were there and you saw eveything, so I end up to the concullsion that what Dr Daniel Aquilina said yesterday on MANUP+ is totally true that when Neptunes or Sliema are involved nothing matters but when another team is involved hell arise! Do you think this is fair as I don’t everythink must be said and these things souldn’t be seen!

    @ Sports Fun .. i think you would be better off getting your facts right. Firstly his name is Jordan Camilleri and secondly he is 17 years old and thus ineligible in the u 16 league. PLS get your facts right !

    Sports Fun Reply:

    Dear M. my point is that Neptunes during a game which involved a group age that represents their minors were involved again in violence between them and this time another club. Apologies for the wrong spelling of the name but you got who I was referring too and believe me if you were there you should know exactly what happened. May I ask you to check the facts about this game and than let me know and thus concentrate more on what happens than on a name! Have a good day.

    On a different note, credit should be given to San Giljan for putting in a brilliant performance. If only they played with such concentration, determination, as well as tactical awaraness and discipline, all season, then they would have won many more games this season. Unfortunately, the SG supporters weren’t able to give their team a well-deserved round of applause at the end of the game due to certain SG players.

    I am a Neptunes supporter and have no problem saying well done to SG for their performance in the water (and obviously not outside); with these type of performances, and with the return of M Zammit they can get far IMO. But first they have to get rid of the rotten apples in the team, and get professional players like Cocci, Bianchi and Fava, and not the hooligans and heroes that caused all the trouble at the end. Controversy aside, SG should really be proud of their performance, as they really pushed Neptunes to the limit.

U nahseb li San Dino Maria Goretti Alla jbierek ,ma qallu xejn per ezempju fuq ommu, familtu u t-tfajla (l’anqas waqt il-penalties li skurjalu Steve). Alla hares l-offizi kollha li jinghadu waqt il-loghob f’kull sport jirrizultaw f’attakki vjolenti bhas-Sibt ghax kieku ma tispiccax loghba wahda fid-dinja. Kieku kien veru li qed tghid, ghaliex Dino ma hax sodissfazzjon fl-ilma dak il- hin ?. Jew irraguna li mitluf b’mitluf jipprova jaghmel minn kollox biex forsi Steve jitlef il-partita li jmiss, kumbinazzjoni wahda decisiva ghal-kampjonat kontra s-Sliema.

And may i ask what Neptunes supporter Mr. Austin Sammut was doing there … the place was full of police i doubt he was of any help the only thing he did was make supporters angry!!! Austin GROW UP OR RESIGN….I hope that mr .Vlado v. of neptunes one of the top players in the world knows its very unsportsman like to punch wilst playing….and to swear at supporters….and steve…..kompli sejjer hekk,,,,missek tisthi….you are truly the biggest show off the sport has ever seen.proset !!!i think it was about time someone put u in your place…although im sure you need a couple more… BUT AS USUAL NEPTUNES AND MR.SAMMUT ARE GOING TO HAVE A FIELD DAY WITH THIS AND PUT EVERYTHING ON SAN GILJAN.!!!!!

    JJG, qed tghid il paroli, Stevie kiesah veru, Stevie jitlifa veru, pero before stevie even scored that first goal, extremely personal abuse was already thrown at him by yours truly….. Dino. I assure you that not even the calmest of guys what have kept their cool. Yet words were exchanged, as happens in all games.
    Stevie kept playing his game and scored 6 goals. No one is stupid, we all knew that most San giljan players were not playing to win but their sole aim was to provoke steve and from what I hear stellini. Luckily stellini remained calm, however I believe that steve was left with no choice but resort to violence once that rodent kicked his father.

    JJG, you may be right. i cannot judge as I was not there. However, as any other person who saw the media reports and footage, can only judge by what is seen………and this is embarrassing!!!!!
    Does it mean that if you are provoked, you take the law in your hands??? Or shall we question the intelligence of those who cannot ignore provocation, but rather take on the beastly attitude, as seen….. Those who cannot control their tempers cannot take positions which include young children….that is all. It is a pity because both rainer and Dino are dedicated to the youngsters but are also hungry for success. This is what sparked off the controversy of the U14s. Think twice, Is it their success they are looking for???I tend to agree that Neptunes have a preferred treatment at ASA but in this case and the one of the U14s, we readers, viewers, listeners, THE PUBLIC draw a line on what is concretely proven……..That SG has fallen into a deep pit!!!!
    Stand up and get out of this, for waterpolo, the club and the town, who we all dearly love!!!!!

    no asif san giljan were clearly the victims as always. if anyone cared to watch the sports news on net tv it clearly shows that they had nothing to do with the whole incident. WAT A JOKE. poor dino was being picked on and was forced to answer back.Karl Galea was verbally attacked for no reason two times in the same week how strange and what to say about Rainer Scerri at the tender age of 20 he has had the luck of forming part of every single team in malta but never actually got to touch the water .

    to top it all off Sir Pierre Borg who was recently knighted for his achievements with the national squad. he was seen encouraging and cheering Dino when he needed his support most , not in the water but out of it as if to say to listen the game can go either way its the aftershow that interests me.

    now regarding stevie he was truly put into his place the san giljan defenders made sure he didnt net his 7th goal and left him finish off the game with a mere 6. then the famous san giljan trio had the energy and fight in them to get through whoever got in their way including two over 50 and an army of the finest police officers our academy has to offer however in all this thanks to some unknown power stevie remained untouched as the trio quickly came to their senses just in time and provided the public with beverages to fight off the heat.

    i myself would like to personally thank san giljan for their contribution to maltese waterpolo and i too agree that all rules issued by the maltese federation should not apply to them as they are GILJANIZI not mere maltese like the rest of us. hahaha

    neutral Reply:

    I have to agree with ‘waterpolo`s’ comment here. i was watching the game, as a neutral and as far as i know, the first sign of agression in that game came from stevie. right after he scored his 1st goal to make the score 1-2 he said something to dino then blatantly kicked toth. this happened in front of the refs eyes and i was surprised that the only action he took was calling him over for a chat. i have played against stevie many times and i play for a second division team so as you can imagine its always very one sided. Mr camilleri still always feels the need to rub salt in out wounds and passes comments aimed at makig us feel worse(while wer losing by 15 goals) So im not at all surprised if people say he was provoking others.

    Also i saw someone with the nickname ‘voice’ saying that you cant compare steive to players like marco or valletta as he is much better then them. this is like saying ronaldo is better than someone like giggs. on one hand you have an arrogant kid with lots of talent. and on the other hand you have professionals who managed to keep an extremely high lever for 25+ years. if stevie grows up and keeps up this lever for 20 years then maybe you can say something like that. untill then hel just be the arrogant little kid which he very clearly is.

    also please note that this comment is not coming from some neptunes hater, im just saying like i see it from a neutral point.

    to be a professional you have to play professionaly. stevie is way way ahead . marco was great in malta FULL STOP. stevie is showing how truly great he is ABROAD in the top league in europe. if stevie was an arrogant young kid he would not be going to soon start his third year in the italian championship. and he surely has a few things regarding his attitude he could sort out but who didnt at 23

    M Reply:

    arrogant little kid .. i must say your comment makes me laugh the most. i ask myself – would an arrogant little kid be playing for a 3rd consecutive year in the best league in the world and reaching heights that were never reached ? i can assure you that he is not a little kid. on a different note, isnt it fascinating whatenvy can do to people – the mentality is all wrong in malta. as a player you should know, what happens in the water stays in the water !! im just happy steve is bigger than anyone else and never sinks to such low levels.

    [Reply]

    neutral Reply:

    1st of all Marco and other greats played in a different time and had different priorities in life. I’m sure that players like Marco/Valletta could have played abroad if they wanted. All I’m saying about this point is that for Stevie to be considered a great, he has to keep up this level of waterpolo for another 20 years. I never said anything about his talent, and if you’re doubting Marco/Valletta’s talent you either know nothing about waterpolo or are too young to remember them playing at their best.

    I stand by my comment about him being an arrogant little kid. The fact that he’s doing well in Italy means nothing. in world sport there’s hundreds of arrogant little kids making millions. An arrogant little kid was named fifa player of the year not so long ago (ronaldo) and another arrogant little kid cost Man City over £20million this summer. Clubs don’t care if their players are arrogant as long as they perform well, neither do the fans.

    Finally your ‘what happens in the water stays in the water’ is right and that’s the way it should be. I’ve been kicked, scratched and worse by (and to) my closest friends during games then joke about it in the showers. But I have on multiple occasions seen Stevie confront opposition players out of the pool, even as recently as last month. So before you say things, make sure you got your facts right.

    i too play waterpolo and my team got beatings by stevie’s team and we had to be victims of his insult…
    howver i do not agree with you, what he and others player do when adding that insult to injury is something i condemn however it is not unfair or incorrect to do it.

    waterpolo is a tough sports and if someone is thinks getting kicked under water is not right then he shouldnt play or comment.

    Ive played against the like of vujasinovic benedek cuk valenti valenti toth rath and bella compagnia. they all kick punch elbow hit etc.. cos it is part of the game…

    last weekend i exchanges some blows with a fellow maltese player, but it stops in the pool after the game we both shook hands and it ended there…

    we should all take exaple from rugby where oppenets almost kill each other but after the game the loosing team greats the winning one by giving him a red carpet treatment clap and shak there hands and in some cases they also go to ech other sponsored bar and drink together…

His father threw the White label trophy into the pool when Valletta lost to Neptunes in the final at the B’bugia pitch in 1983,.If you please he is the coach of the San Giljan U 14 team. Prosit x’ezempju. I do not think that committee members like Danial and Brian are inentionally using him to rear a new generation of holligans. Mhux ahjar tnehhuh minn hemm!. People who surprised me yesterday were Pierre Borg ex National Coach and Toni Galea Police officer, miskhom tisthu, l- incident tal – bierah jibqa’ jcappaskom ghal snin.
    Insomma jien ammiratur kbir tal – loghoba, qumu min hemm u rrangaw l-affarijiet S Gijan ghax il – klabb taghkom ma jixraqlux hekk!
    Jiena Giljaniz u l – lejla mmur nara’ lil San Giljan diehel. Viva Gillu taghna.

    Why were there only two Police officers present during this match? Who was the Officer in charge of this event? Is this the way the Police Force takes care of sport events of this sort? Why they always seem to have to put the safety of Police officers in attendance at sport events at risk?

    Don’t they know anything about controlling such situations? What about security planning beforehand? Police officers present at such events are there to guarantee the safety of the public and those taking part in the sport and to keep public order and peace but to attain this goal they have to be part of a strategic plan and they have to be in sufficient numbers and this is called planning.

    Last but not least, discipline is to be exercised and one hopes that whoever broke the law will be brought to book whilst one also expects the ASA to take necessary action accordingly.

    Once San Giljan got their hopes up thinking that they were going to get something out of the game, it was clear that when they inevitably lost they were going to resort to violence, that way by injuring one of our players, namely steve, they would have atleast got something out of the game and thus had something to celebrate during their festa. The pictures show who are provoking the fights and who are trying to calm tensions.

    Again I would like to echo the praise for Cocci, andrea bianchi and I believe also christian gialanze for their efforts to restore peace, whose efforts without any help from the Giljaniz hooligans or the police for that matter (who seemed too little too confused to do anything)  went a long way and helped prevent any serious injuries. I would also like to condemn the actions of Ex-policemen (well i hope hes an ex policeman), toni liswed who out of all people resparked the violence when shouting vulgarly from the top stands down to steve…..another disgrace was their assistant coach pierre borg….well i believe thats his name….who instead of showing a good example and stopping his players, went in for some action himself. Prosit hey, xezempju ghaz zghar!!!

    Now I can admit that Steve wasnt the calmest of people yesterday, however what do you expect after a game of provocation, with a hit below his eye to prove it, not to mention a flying kick into his father by someone who can only be described as a little rodent with a tattoo! It amazing how jealousy can take over…….. Another shocking was when carl galea, an ex player of neptunes, himself went into the fight…..this shouldnt happen, there doesnt seem to be any respect at all! 
    Now as I emphasized in my previous comment, I am a neutral supporter, I happened to be watching from the shade yesterday.

    In my eyes there wasnt neptunes vs san giljan but civilised vs un-civilised and when one sees which supporters attacked and ran across, as well as after one views the photos, it is clear that apart from a couple of of San Giljan players (who im sure hate being associated with barbarians) – the rest both in the pool and in the stands, belong elsewhere

    Dont be so naive the voice…….and also do not be biased…..Steve is the biggest showoff i have ever seen and he provokes everybody…..If you watched the game you would know exactly what i am talking about and if you can lip read even more….After every goal he had to say something to the opposition and provoke them with bad language…..So for u the VOICE is that ok….. I remember greats like marco manara and jonathan valletta who never did this crap and where equally as good…. He is big headed and all this limelight kif tghid bil Malti lellau ar rasu……

    And than after all the provokation he started to cry after he generated all the fiasco…… A great player but a loser…….

    FACT Reply:

    what game did you watch??? where was he crying ??? no one in malta is his equal and ill go as far as to say as very few even abroad have his talent. he has always been highly praised by all foreigners and coaches. i remember dudo once saying that he had never come across a youngster of such talent when playing in europe. vlado in a recent interview said and i quote “e ‘ come avere un straniero in ogni posizione “. these are the greats of international waterpolo players talking and not an arrogant maltese know it all as yourself .of course he is not perfect but i see the positive in everything and i doubt that he would have got as far as he did if he was not so competitive (that you mistake for arrogance).in true maltese fashion we do not know how to appreciate talent and other peoples success as we are blinded by our jealousy and that gets you nowhere.

    lets be reasonable stevie is clearly not the calmest of people but he is surely not a provoker because he is abviously doesnt need to be. he is 23 years old so i think we should cut him some slack.it was clear from the first few actions what intentions a couple of san giljan players had in mind or might also add were KINDLY asked to do.

    i remember an action were steve seemed to be talking calmly to toth and dino swam a good 5m out of his post to pass some gentle comments which you yourself might have caught being an expert lip reader.. i myself saw steve turn towards the bench and pass some remark but im quite sure he was just answering back as on both penalty occassions dino who had been substituted could be heard shouting something off the bench.

    however i too believe Steve shouldn’t stoop to these levels but not because it makes him any less great but just because he simply doesn’t need to.i would also like to point out that besides all this he was still able to be truly exceptional scoring no less than six goals and gifting his team the victory

    Good evening kiesah (no pun intended), firstly don’t compare Stevie to Manara or any other local great because steve is far greater than any of those ever were. Secondly we are aware that steve isn’t patient and certainty not shy to respond to provocation. However steve always keeps the talking inside the pool, as always happens in sports!! What’s more he let’s his performance do the talking….. No hooliganism by a macho dwarf who thinks he can do what he wants just because he has an oversize tattoo on his chest! Steve is respected by many international greats throughout the Italian league, rainier and dino perhaps by two barbaric teenagers and a giljaniz duck. So don’t compare class with filth. We all saw who ran across the pitch, ofcourse steve had to be held back, his father had just got kicked by somebody who should be in a cage…. Now please join the rest of your giljaniz friends and condemn the actions of some of your players and supporters…. Open your eyes!

    I was shocked when they started insulting Vujasinovic. Throughout the world he is respected as being not only one of the best players in the history of waterpolo, but also a true professional and gentlemen. Look at the respect he got in Italy with Pro Recco. Then in Malta, these hooligans from San Giljan sing ‘Vlado Vlado vafa****) cause he spoke to the ref? And when Vlado was the bigger man and shook the ref’s hand they sarcastically applaud him and continue insulting him. Even Toth and Nossek were ashamed of the actions and behaviour of the players/supports of SG.

    What you said is true but how it is done doesn’t make sense first of all the first  board was made out of independent people who knows all about the rules of the game and than they changed the board to people who know just a bit more than me about the rules (and from what I’ve heard they are friends of friends) but anyway we live in Malta and that is very common and my point is that the first verdict said that we weren’t guilty and than all of a sudden we become thieves, so in my opinion when you want to change something you change it from the next season not in the middle of it! From me this only shows 14 year old boys and under that who has money always wins! Which is a shame.

    money always wins???…..so your claiming that neptunes or sliema or whoever bribed someone at the ASA for an u/14 match? get a life lol the simple facts are that the players were registered too late, hence they should not have played, i learnt today that a player can be given a match card after the deadline BUT still can not play….maybe that rule should be revoked or remy, before issueing the match cards remind SG about the rule……or maybe SG should learn them…..

    Why do you mention the two clubs. First of all it was the referees who by their control kept San Giljan constantly in the game. They were not consistent at all. Secondly when San Giljan smelt that defeat was inevitable two of their players tried to do what they did not succeed during the match – attack the Neptunes players and their obvious target was Neptunes and Malta’s prodigy Stevie Camilleri. The two players involved are the coaches of San Giljan’s junior teams. What an example they have set especially to the under-14 players they coach. These incidents with the two players pictured above going round the pool to physically attack their opponents were uncalled for. I say well done to San Giljan’s Marton Toth, who visibly disgusted with his colleagues’ attitude, did not make any progress in the dying seconds of the game as did Tamas Molnar when he regained possession.
