Tempers flared at the end of the Beermen's victory over the reigning league champions in Jakarta when the 23-year-old Smith shoved Taulava. The two had also figured in several bruising plays during the game.

“I was already walking away and there he goes with his cheap shot," said Taulava who claimed that he and Eric Menk were at the receiving end of Smith’s "dirty plays" all game long.
