WATCH: Footage of Steve Diamond’s confrontation with journalist emerges

The Telegraph have released footage of the confrontation between Sale Sharks headcoach Steve Diamond and Independent journalist Sam Peters.

Peters took to social media to “confirm an altercation took place”.

A spokesperson said the RFU would “look into it” if a complaint is received.

Any charge against Diamond would be brought under the banner of bringing the game into disrepute.

Despite a short video of the pair arguing appearing in the Sunday Telegraph, and a number of reports giving detail of the altercation, the game’s national governing body has not had a formal complaint.
