Toulouse Sweat On Teroki's Availability For Leinster Tie After Shocking Tackle

Toulouse Sweat On Teroki's Availability For Leinster Tie After Shocking Tackle

An enthralling Top 14 clash between Toulouse and Clermont ended in an incredible 47-44 victory for the league leaders but could came at a cost as they wait to see if Joe Teroki is cited for a high tackle during the game.

It was a match that had it all with field length tries, Morgan Parra line-out throws, yellow cards and possible reds. Yet a second-half incident could land forward Joe Tekori in hot water.

The Samoan was sin-binned by referee Romain Poite for a high tackle along the sideline but it could well have been red as he had led with the shoulder and connected with the head. Yohan Beheregaray was stretchered off after the incident.

Speaking on Canal, Vicent Clerc said it should have been a red card. Will Greenwood suggested similar on Sky Sports. The citing commissioner can still cite Teroki if he deems it worthy of a sending off.

Toulouse travel to Dublin next weekend to take on their pool rivals Leinster in the European Champions Cup semi-final.
