French forward avoids red card for violent attack on Alun Wyn Jones

France scrum-half Antoine Dupont inspired his side to a 38-21 victory over Wales in a Six Nations warm-up match behind closed doors in Paris.

The video clip, which was shared across social media, clearly shows French second row Bernard Le Roux viscously elbow the Wales skipper during a confrontation at the breakdown.

Surely this should have been a red card?
