Biarritz scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili has been cited for repeatedly stamping on Racing Métro centre Henry Chavancy last Saturday.
The French international was shown a yellow card for his actions in the dying minutes of the 23-11 defeat to Racing at the Parc des Sports d'Aguilera but is likely to be slapped with a lengthy ban.
Video evidence shows that Yachvili clearly has a very serious case against him (have a look at 1:50:45 here.) but in yet another example of the Top 14's incomprehensible disciplinary processes, the veteran of 61 Tests will only appear at a hearing on March 13, nearly three weeks after the incident.
As a result, the 32-year-old will be available for Friday's Basque derby against Bayonne and the trip to league leaders Toulon a week later.
Meanwhile, Toulon backs coach Pierre Mignoni will appear before a disciplinary commission on the same day to answer for his behaviour on the sidelines during Toulon's loss to Castres last Friday.
