According to Yahoo 7 Sport News in Australia:

A Faulconbridge resident, who goes by the name "Shunter" on Twitter according to News Limited reports, was competing with another fan at the interval in a popular game called the 'Big Ball Bash'.

The game sees two teams sprint from each goal line to a giant ball and attempt to push it over the opposition stripe.

As for "Shunter," he soon took to Twitter with an update on his condition:
