On the field, Friday evening, Provence Rugby dominated Nevers (26-23) during the second day of Pro D2.

But it was not just about sport on the lawn of the Maurice-David stadium in Aix-en-Provence.

The nevers winger Christian Ambadiang was the target of racist insults addressed by an opponent and detailed on his Instagram account: “I'm going to burn you, banana eater.


"It is crazy to think that in the rugby community, such racist incidents should be put under the rug and tolerated in private," writes the Cameroonian three-quarter-wing.

This also indicates that the player suspected of having insulted him would have minimized his behavior, indicating that he got carried away “in the heat of the moment”.

The apologies of the Provence Rugby club

The Bouches-du-Rhône club reacted this Saturday in a press release.

“Provence Rugby would like to apologize to Christian Ambadiang and, more generally, to all those who could be shocked by the situation,” he assures us.

We are too.

The management of the club will now meet with his player and put in place sanctions commensurate with the seriousness of the facts.


According to

, a report was drawn up by the Nevers club and sent to the National Rugby League.
