Two sons of a leading QC accused with a friend of viciously bashing two other men after an AFL final could fight the charges they face.

Brothers Dominic, 27, and Sam Walker, 25, and their friend Benjamin Fitt, 27, sat together in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday as their lawyers were granted permission to cross-examine the victims and six other witnesses at an upcoming committal hearing.

The Walker brothers, the sons of Tim Walker, QC, and grandsons of pre-eminent scientist and 2000 Australian of the Year recipient Sir Gustav Nossal, and Mr Fitt are accused of punching and kicking two men in Wellington Parade in East Melbourne, not far from the MCG, on September 7 last year, after Richmond beat Hawthorn in a qualifying final.

Graphic video footage recorded by a bystander shows a man in a Richmond beanie repeatedly punch and stomp on a man lying on the road, while two other men can be seen assaulting another man behind.
