TOULON’S former Leicester prop Martin Castrogiovanni has received a suspended four-match ban after he admitted a misconduct complaint, European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) announced yesterday.

Castrogiovanni has also been ordered to pay €10,000 (£8,000) to charity in Leicester following his post-match comments aimed at the Premiership club and their rugby director Richard Cockerill after Toulon’s 25-21 European Champions Cup defeat against the Tigers earlier this month.

A complaint was lodged against the 33-year-old Italy international following a bizarre post-match episode at Welford Road on December 7.

He sought out English journalists in the Leicester press room and then launched an expletive-laden outburst at Cockerill and Tigers over his perception of the way he left the Aviva Premiership club in 2013.
