A Massive Brawl broke out at the world cup qualifying game between Philippines and Australia with four minutes left in the third quarter of the game and the Phillippines squad down by 31 points.
The brawl began with Goulding knocked to the floor after the collision, prompting Australian big man Daniel Kickert to hit Pogoy with an elbow.
Both benches emptied, with punches were thrown from both camps. South Sudan-Australian forward Thon Maker was seen kicking Gilas naturalized player Andray Blatche during the bench-clearing incident.

Nine Gilas Pilipinas players were ejected after being involved in a bench-clearing brawl against the visiting Australia here at the Philippine Arena on Monday, July 2.
Terrence Romeo, Jayson Castro, Calvin Abueva, Andray Blatche, Roger Pogoy, Troy Rosario, Japeth Aguilar, Carl Bryan Cruz and Matthew Wright were all slapped with disqualifying fouls, leaving 3 Filipino players to face the Aussies.
On Australia’s side, Nathan Sobey, Thon Maker, Daniel Kickert and Christopher Goulding were thrown out.

But the Philippines wound up losing by default against Australia, 89-53, as the 3 Gilas players left eventally fouled out.
