Multiple players suspended following Perpignan and Bayonne mass brawl

Multiple players suspended following Perpignan and Bayonne mass brawl

Five players have picked up suspensions for their part in a Top 14 mass brawl between Perpignan and Bayonne a few weeks back. Each club has been fined thousands of Euros for the fight, which included punches thrown after the final whistle at the Stade Aime Gira.

Remy Martin, Gregory Le Corvec, David Marty, and Aretz Iguiniz will all be relegated to the stands for the next month, following a decision from the LNR earlier tonight to suspend all give of them after they each were found to have thrown multiple punches.

It was a typically fierce tempered encounter between the two sides, as visitors Bayonne took to the pitch amidst a chorus of booing, perhaps setting the tone for what would be an occasion marred by violence.

Perpignan won the match 25-19, but yellow cards were dished out at regular intervals, with the worst of the fights taking place after the final whistle, with Le Corvec walking up to Martin and having a full go.

He will be out until April 22nd, while Martys case will be reclassified on April 12th. Bayonne flanker Jean-Jo Marmouyet also appears to have been suspended, with the same punishment as Marty. Aretz Iguiniz has been suspended for twenty days.

Perpignan meanwhile have been fined 7 000 euros, while Bayonne were handed a 12 000 euros fine, with the 5000 extra based on them being repeat offenders.
