Jason Eaton and Julien Bonnaire fight as La Rochelle claims famous win

first_imgMonday Feb 2, 2015 Jason Eaton and Julien Bonnaire fight as La Rochelle claims famous win La Rochelle upset Clermont 16-12  in the Top 14 on Saturday thanks to a late try by Mali Hingano. Earlier in the game there was a bit of an ugly incident however, with Kiwi Jason Eaton unleashing on French international Julien Bonnaire.After a dour first half that featured penalty exchanges by Peter Grant and Brock James, things heated up early in the second, as Eaton and Bonnaire came to blows.Both players were sin-binned, however it looked as though former All Black Eaton certainly got the better of the exchange, landing a few shots to the face of Bonnaire, who must have done something that wasn’t quite visible from the camera angles.Bonnaire was furious with the loss, but said post match that the Six Nations break will be good for his side, who are still joint top of the table with Toulon and Stade Francais.Regarding the incident with Eaton, he said he was unsure what started it, but will watch the footage.“He (Eaton) said it was me who started it.. I’ll have to see the video, but I don’t think I caused much,” Bonnaire said. He also mentioned that he has three stitches above his right eyebrow, but wasn’t too bothered, adding that it is simply an occupational hazard.The win gave La Rochelle much needed points as they fight the relegation battle. View the dramatic finish to the match, including a slippery Peter Grant conversion, on page twocredit: Boucherie OvalieADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Serb journalist jailed for 27 months in case brought by party officials

Cvetkovic was prosecuted after three officials of the ruling Serb Progressive Party filed complaints against him. He was found guilty by a court in the city of Vrsac, north-east of Belgrade, on March 14, which also fined him more than 2 million dinars (17,000 euros). Cvetkovic is a well-known critic of the local authorities, against whom he filed a complaint of misuse of public funds in 2014, and recently raised questions about the role of the three officials in various criminal matters. The journalists, who has received a number of death threats, said he would appeal against the verdict, which he saw as a new attempt to intimidate him. “This verdict is unfair and disproportionate,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s European Union-Balkans desk. “Since 2012, defamation is no longer punishable by imprisonment.”Serbia is ranked 59th of 180 countries in the 2016 Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index.
