DISCIPLINARY NEWS: France’s Paul Gabrillagues has been cited for foul play.

The 26-year-old was cited by independent citing commissioner Shaun Gallagher (England) for an alleged act of foul play contrary to Law 9.20 (dangerous play in a ruck or maul) during the 17th minute of the France versus Scotland test match in Nice on Saturday.

Gabrillagues’s disciplinary hearing will be heard by an independent panel comprising Chair Antony Davies (England), former international referee Donal Courtney (Ireland) and former international player Stefan Terblanche (South Africa).

France won the match 32-3.

The fixture was the first outing of the French side since the appointment of former captain Fabien Galthie as an advisor to head coach Jacques Brunel, before he takes over from the 65-year-old after the World Cup in Japan.
