Two players singled out in French second division mass brawl

Two players singled out in French second division mass brawl

ProD2, the French second division, returned with a bang as Colomiers beat bottom of the table Bourgoin 42-5 in a one sided encounter. With Colomiers leading comfortably late on, an off-the-ball scuffle between a few players quickly escalated into a full-on mass brawl.

The incident forced referee Ludovic Carrillo to stop play as both teams got stuck in.

In what the French call a “baggare général”, these ugly scenes marred the closing minutes. Several punches were thrown, with some landing with force.

Justifiably, the two main insitgators Damien Weber (Colomiers) and Jean-François Roux (Bourgoin) were shown yellow cards for their punches. As of yet, neither player has been cited.

Were yellow cards the right decision?

    Wow, my French was just shameful there. Having spoken the language for nearly 15 years, I can't believe I a) mis-spelt bagarre and b) thought for some reason it was masculine! Excusez-moi, j'ai la honte ;)

    Translation of the Parlez-vous Rugby clip: 80 minutes of pure fucking manic aggression lads. I think that was the general gist of it anyway. ;)
