There was a nasty moment in tonight’s ProD2 clash in the French rugby second division leading to a player being sent to the bin.
The incident occurred in the 24th minute of play in the game between Biarritz and Provence Rugby.
We feel like this could easily have been given as a red card in today’s game!
The hosts were leading by just a slender two-point margin when the sickening incident happened.

This is what is more commonly known as a clothesline hit. It looked awful in real-time speed and we feel the player could easily have been given his marching orders after this challenge in the French ProD2 this evening.
The man who was sent to the bin, Romain Sola, was immediately apologetic – knowing how bad the challenge was and didn’t question the referee’s decision for a moment.
