France lock Bernard Le Roux has found himself in trouble following his moment of madness against Wales on Saturday. Le Roux has been cited for an alleged act of foul play during France’s 38-21 win over Wales on Saturday.


The 31-year-old will appear in front of a World Rugby appointed three-man independent panel for striking Wales second-row Alun Wyn Jones.

Footage revealed that the Racing 92 forward cleared out the Welsh legend at a breakdown in the first half but appeared to have his arm around his neck as he drove through the ruck.

Hartley talks about maybe his most infamous red card:

The 31-year-old then pushed Jones to the ground and followed through with his right forearm and elbow to the face of the Welshman.

Le Roux who was not penalised during the game as referee Karl Dickson and television match official missed the incident.

His disciplinary hearing is set to take place on Tuesday. Welsh skipper Jones refused to comment on the incident in the post-match press conference.
