The brawl that erupted during a pre-season friendly between the Newcastle Jets and the Wellington Phoenix on Saturday will be the focus of a review from Football Federation Australia.

With the match officially sanctioned by the FFA, it is subject to the same scrutiny as regular-season games.

Those sent off in the match in Weston - Newcastle's Tiago and Phoenix trio Manny Muscat, Ben Sigmund and Andrew Durante - will automatically miss two pre-season matches after being shown straight red cards.

They could be among those facing longer bans should the FFA deem further action appropriate.

"We will get the referee's report and any footage we can get our hands on and then make determinations," an FFA spokesman told The Newcastle Herald on Sunday. 

"It is an internal process between football operations, our legal team and the referees department. If the footage reveals any more [than the send-offs], we will act on that as we do in all matches."

The brawl began in the 25th minute of the 3-1 win to Newcastle when Muscat and Tiago clashed, with a melee developing as players on the pitch and from the bench became involved.

Muscat, Tiago and Sigmund were sent off as referee Tim McGilchrist finally restored order, with Durante sent off against his former club during the second half.

    INDIO, Calif. (AP) — When it first started in 1999, Coachella was a couple of stages and a dance tent. Tickets were $65. A few dusty stands sold hot dogs and Cokes. It was the end of grunge and the start of a new millennium, and it was all about the music. All for one weekend. …
