POLICE and delegates from Norths and Brothers clubs will watch video footage to identify more possible culprits involved in Sunday's melee.

In the aftermath of the Ipswich Rugby League grand final, a series of altercations between up to 100 spectators and police took place and 12 people were arrested.

The altercations were in the streets surrounding North Ipswich Reserve, after a man had been arrested and escorted out of the ground.

"There are some other people, I understand, that were not arrested on the day because it was too difficult for the police to get to them.

"We are trying to identify who those people are so police can locate them and speak to them about the matter."

Insp McDonald said police, liquor licensing representatives and club officials had "fruitful discussions" yesterday.

The IRL chairman Jack Rhea and Insp McDonald will be at another meeting next week when they will discuss future policing strategies for IRL grand finals.
