Urios and Galthie given suspensions

Date published: December 7 2017

Coaches Christophe Urios and Fabien Galthie have been handed four-week touchline bans over an altercation during Castres’ 20-19 victory over Toulon.

Urios slapped Galthie after the ex-scrum-half had been embroiled in an argument with Castres assistant Frederic Charrier.

The Castres and Toulon head honchos will therefore be unable to direct operations on the sidelines for their Champions Cup double-headers against Racing 92 and Bath respectively.

Fines of €10,000 were also imposed while RCT received an extra €5,000 penalty for allowing unauthorised people on the touchline.
