This is just a short clip to show the incident that has resulted in a citing for Bayonne's Rmy Martin in the Top 14.
Bayonne are near the bottom of the table and looking at a possible relegation from the Top 14, so this blow won't do their cause any good whatsoever.
Martin, captain of the side, was cited by the LNR and will appear before a disciplinary commitee after he stamped on Jean-Baptiste Elissalde of Toulouse.
Martin will surely claim that it wasn't deliberate, but Elissalde was injured in the incident, and as you can see in this clip, wasn't too pleased with his former French colleague.
Martin's displinary hearing will only take place on January 20th, which oddly enough means that he will be free to play until then.
Elissalde had scans on Monday which found that there was actually no cartilage damage around his ribs after they were stamped on.
