3. Pablo Matera (Argentina)
In December 2020, he was stripped of the Argentina captaincy and suspended along with two team-mates for “discriminatory and xenophobic” comments in historical social media posts.
The Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) says it “strongly repudiates” comments made by Matera as well as Guido Petti and Santiago Socino between 2011 and 2013.
Strangely, three days later he was reinstated.
