A rugby union player who was injured in an altercation during a match is no longer in a critical condition.

Tuui Radrava, 30, suffered a brain injury at the game between York Railway Institute and Doncaster Thornensians on Saturday in York.

Police said York player Mr Radrava remained at Leeds General Infirmary but his condition was improving.

Three arrested Doncaster Thornensians players, aged 19, 21 and 23, have been released on bail.

Mr Radrava's mother has flown from Fiji to be by his bedside.

His club said: "The club prides itself on being a family and so the thoughts of all at R.I. are with him and his immediate family who are by his bedside."

North Yorkshire Police have urged spectators at the match to contact York CID.
