The bizarre moment coach Christophe Urios slapped Fabien Galthié

Toulon's troubles in the Top14 grew deeper on Saturday afternoon as the French giants lost 20-19 to Castres at the Stade Pierre-Antoine, yet that was not what had people talking after the game. 

The home side were able to pick up a try in only the fourth minute through the pacy work of winger Julien Caminati and then a penalty try in the last quarter, while fly-half Ben Urdapiletta gathered the rest from the tee. 

However, it was not the action on the field which caught the attention of the viewing audience at home but rather an altercation between the managers of the opposing sides.

Castres manager Christophe Urios was seen visibly enraged with Toulon's Fabien Galthie on the sideline. As Urios gave out what must have been a strong tongue lashing, he moved closer to his counterpart before slapping his face.

Following the spat, Urios explained: "I went to see Fabien because he insulted us, what? We do not have the right to argue between coaches?"
