Toulon chief tackles fans

Have your say

Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal claims the club could take legal action against the Leicester supporters whose testimony led to Delon Armitage being handed a 12-week suspension.

English full-back Armitage was issued with his punishment on Wednesday evening, after it was alleged he used offensive language towards spectators at Welford Road in Toulon’s European Rugby Champions Cup match against the Tigers on Sunday, December 7.

Reacting to the sanction, Boudjellal told newspaper La Provence: “It’s incomprehensible. There is no formal proof, no official document, not even television pictures to attest to the veracity of these testimonies so we aren’t discounting the eventuality of going after these two supporters in court for false testimonies.”
