There are gestures that remain incomprehensible.
This Saturday, the Castres received Bordeaux on the occasion of the third day of Top 14. 64th minute, the UBB ahead of the blues and whites by 3 points, while Castres dominated the first act.
At the time of clearing the ball, Maxime Lucu is violently struck by Ryno Pieterse, arrived launched.
The tackle is behind the scrum half who has not yet regained his support, and all the more dangerous as almost 30 kg separate the two players.
There is no doubt, the match referee takes out the red card.
Pieterse is excluded.
Lucu is replaced by Lesgourgues after leaving the field in commotion.

The Castres must then evolve outnumbered at home. The tension is palpable after this gesture, and in a very close match. The blues and whites finally stick to the score at the last moment by taking the three points of a final penalty. The two teams parted with a draw (23-23). The CO recorded a 10th game without defeat, but having inflicted a great fear on the Bordelais. More fear than harm, Maxime Lucu was finally seen at the edge of the field. Pieterse risks him a heavy penalty. He is currently suspended before a passage before the disciplinary committee.
