Castres coach Christophe Urios slapped Toulon coach Fabien Galthié in the face during a heated argument between the pair during Castres 20-19 win over Toulon over the weekend.
Urios, whose side lie in sixth place in the Top 14 following the narrow win, was incandescent with former French scrum-half Galthié after he had allegedly insulted one of his coaching team.
Confronting Galthié, the former Castres hooker gives him a real tongue-lashing and then proceeds to give him a little shove, before then slapping him in the face in the rather bizarre incident.

Explaining the incident, the former Oyonnax coach said:
“I went to see Fabien because he insulted us, what? We do not have the right to argue between coaches?”
It was another disappointing day for former Montpellier coach Galthié as he saw his side lose their sixth game of the season and drop to eighth place in the league as the pressure mounts on the 48-year-old.
