Jocelino Suta red card for shoulder charge on Remy Martin

Jocelino Suta red card for shoulder charge on Remy Martin

It's been a controversial week for rugby in the UK and France as a handful of incidents have resulted in suspensions. Here's a quick clip of one that took place in the Top 14, when Toulon met Bayonne last week.

Toulon lock Joss Suta made this horrible looking hit on Remy Martin as his side went down 20-9 in what was a disastrous game for the big spending team. Suta was shown a straight red, leaving his team to play the remainder of the game with just fourteen men. Martin left the field shortly after the dangerous hit.

The referee's handling of the game came into question though as Toulon coach Phillipe Saint Andre was frustrated with the way the match was handled at times.

"Bayonne should be congratulated for winning a game one try to zero against fourteen players. You're always going to be chasing the game when that happens," he said.

Suta was cited and will appear before a Disciplinary Committee on January 19. He is suspended from playing pending the decision of that hearing.
