Watch: Donncha O'Callaghan Would Be Proud Of Toulouse's Hooker Playing The Last 10 Minutes Shirtless

France must be warm at this time of year. That is the only explanation for hooker Julien Marchand's lack of upper body attire in the closing stages of Toulouse's Top 14 clash this afternoon.

The home side were upset 31-29 by Montpellier but the real talking point afterwards was that Marchand played the last few minutes without a jersey. And it's not as if he was able to blend in by wearing a layer of thermals.

No, he was shirtless. Surely this isn't allowed?

Not since Donncha O'Callaghan's heyday has a player showed such blatant disregard for sartorial conformity.

It really is a toss-up as to whose actions were more objectionable.
