Watch: Garry Monk Involved In GAA-Style Brawl During Fiery Yorkshire Derby

Every 'derby' stereotype rang true earlier when Huddersfield Town took on Leeds in a Yorkshire derby. Passion? Check. Intensity? Check. A big massive fight? Oh yes.

Huddersfield have been coming out on top recently, having won the last two meetings between the pair. They went ahead after 25 mintues through Izzy Brown, before Chris Wood (who else?) equalized for Leeds. It was heading for a draw

Michael Hefele had another idea. The big defender managed to poke home a winner which caused absolute elation at the John Smith stadium. Including from manager David Wagner, who made a Mourinho-esque sprint up the touchline in celebration.


On his way back, Garry Monk appeared to step into Wagner's path and as punishment was hit with a hard shoulder. This sparked a scuffle which resulted in both managers being sent from the sideline.

Monk was furious afterward, saying that Wagner acted without "class".


My values are to have humility, a bit of respect and a bit of class. I didn't see that.

Wagner is one of the more eccentric managers in the division, which makes us question if he deliberately did this. The goal was big, as it lifted the Terriers above Leeds in the table to 4th place and completed a league double over their rivals.

Hefele compounded the madness by calling it a ''fucking dream'' in his post match interview.


You've got to love the Championship.
