France’s Brice Dulin Brutally Attacked

Castres full-back Brice Dulin is facing one to two months on the sidelines after being the victim of an attack, the player informed AFP by text-message.

Dulin suffered a broken jaw in an attack on Friday night during a festival in Mont-de-Marsan, where he and some Castres team-mates were showing off the French championship trophy they won in June.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

The 23-year-old is definitely out of Castres’ first two Top 14 matches of the new season, away to Perpignan and against Grenoble at home.
