Lifelong ban from any sport and press charges.
Something similar happened in one of my matches this season. We'd scored and one of our players went up to one of their players who'd made a mistake (and who had been in a bit of a physical and verbal battle with him all game) and laughed in the guys face. The oppo player just lost it and ****** our player in the face, full blown punch to the mouth. Think our guy was knocked out as well, just awful to see.
We ended the game there and then as we didn't have a proper ref. It was provoked and stupid of our player, but a completely out of proportion reaction that has no place on the pitch or in society in general. We didn't bother pressing charges despite having witnesses from the public too, as the guy was an international student and probably would have been kicked out of the uni and country if he was found guilty of assault.

Agreed with above, lifetime ban and pursue assault charge.
Not sure why the ref booked him though....
