“Honestly I’m in disbelief” – France star gets away with ‘red card’ clearout against Wales

France forward Thibaud Flament was lucky to escape further punishment for this ugly looking clearout against Wales in Cardiff.

The visitors kept alive their dreams of a first Grand Slam and Six Nations title since 2010 with a tense 13-9 victory at the Principality.

One moment of contention spotted during the game was this ugly looking clearout by Flament in the second-half.

Fabien Galthie’s side will aim to complete the Grand Slam against England next Saturday in Paris, while Wales host Italy in their final game.

It was a third defeat in four matches for Wayne Pivac’s defending champions alongside a narrow victory over Scotland.


RANKED: 5 of the biggest ‘cheats’ in Rugby

Fans have been ranking who they consider the dirtiest players in the game today. In some cases it seems unpopularity saw them picked while other stars have been named and shamed for their thuggish actions on the field.

#5. Owen Farrell (England)

Could it be anybody else to start? Farrell fits the label “our guy” better than most, meaning you love to hate him unless he’s in your squad. Then you’d go to the end’s of the earth to defend him. The England captain, also known as ‘Shoulder boy’ for his high tackling, does himself no favours with his poor tackling technique. The fact he often seems to get away with it doesn’t help either.
