The captain of the Blues had been expelled for a dangerous action on Cheslin Kolbe during the victory of France against South Africa (30-26), Saturday November 12 in Marseille.
Antoine Dupont will not return to the rugby pitches before December 18. So decided the Disciplinary Committee of World Rugby which judged the scrum-half’s fault and captain of the France team on Cheslin Kolbe during the France-South Africa match, Saturday November 12 in Marseille.
Three games without him for Toulouse
The Toulousain received a four-week suspension, which will deprive him of the match between France and Japan but also two Top 14 matches and one European Cup with his club.
For his part, the third line Springboks Pieter-Steph Du Toit received only three weeks of suspension (two if he completes an awareness course), for his charge in the face of Jonathan Danty.
