PARIS (AFP) – Toulon’s South African third rower Charl Van Vliet has been called before the National Rugby League (LNR) disciplinary commission on January 3 after being accused of racism by a black French player.

“Following remarks the RC Toulon player made towards Pau player Guy Jeannard … Charl Van Vliet has been summonsed before the disciplinary commission on January 3, 2007,” the LNR said in a statement.

Pau second rower Jeannard left the field voluntarily moments before the final whistle of last Saturday’s 17-18 defeat to second division rivals Toulon.

According to Pau club officials the 34-year-old Jeannard said he had been the victim of “intolerable racist insults” on the part of Van Vliet.

He decided to leave the pitch, he said, before doing something he would later regret.
