It's alleged Tony Patrulovsk took exception to the 13-year-old filming as fighting broke out during an under-18s match in South Sydney in late July.

The boy's footage appears to show Patrulovsk spotting him filming before he approaches and appears to hit him.

The young victim received cuts and fell to the ground.

Patrulovsk is charged with assault and intimidation, and vowed to fight the charges when he appeared in court yesterday.

He faces a lifetime ban from playing if found guilty of assault.
