Ex-Australia international Timani fined €10,000 by French court following bottle throwing incident

The 29-year-old back row, who won the last of his twelve Wallabies caps in November 2017, was being prosecuted for “violence with a weapon” – in this case, a bottle.

According to a report in L’Equipe, after being kicked out of the nightclub in 2019 for nudging a security guard inside the establishment, La Rochelle forward Timani threw a bottle which hit another security guard in the face. 

This man and one of his colleagues then attacked the player, one of the two guards hitting him with a security barrier as well as punching and kicking.
