Dupuy could face hefty ban

Stade Francais No 9 Julien Dupuy has been accused of eye-gouging in the 23-13 defeat against Ulster on Saturday.

The French international was sin-binned for a shoulder charge off the ball during the game, but could now face serious punishment after Ireland flank Stephen Ferris has accused Dupuy of attacking his eye.

‘He said to me ”I did not do anything” and I said ”we’ll soon see”,’ said Ferris.

It has been reported that there is sufficient video evidence of the incident, so an official citing is expected.
