Silvere Tian has paid a HUGE price for abusing Romain Poite

Oyonnax’s Silvere Tian has paid dearly for abusing and threatening Romain Poite in a recent Top14 clash.

A native of the Ivory Coast, the fullback has been handed a 15-month ban, which will mean he won’t play rugby until June 2017. Aged 35, it could effectively spell the end of his career.
