Rugby League stars Leon Pryce and Stuart Reardon have walked free from court today after they were sentenced for assault.

The two men, who represent Great Britain, were charged with assaulting Reardon's estranged wife Kay and her new partner in an incident last July.

Reardon admitted to assaulting Kay while Pryce confessed to assaulting Mrs Reardon's new partner.

Reardon has been given a 12-week suspended sentence, while Pryce must do 100 hours unpaid work.

Judge Alan Fowler who sentenced the pair in Bradford described the assault as "astonishingly frightening".
