Yoann Huget could face a possible World Cup ban after footage emerged of the Toulouse winger stomping on the head of an opponent during a Top 14 clash.
A video shows Huget smashing his cleats into the face of Bordeaux Begles lock Andre Marais in the 18th minute of last Saturday’s game.
There have been no sanctions for the France international so far, but that will probably change as footage of the intentional facial goes viral.
Huget has made 38 appearances for France an his coaches will be worried that he could face a suspension for some or all of the upcoming competition this November.
The 27-year-old is no stranger to controversy, in 2011 the winger was expelled from France’s World Cup squad for not observing anti-doping rules.
