The French 10 responsible for THAT eye gouge has been given a disgracefully short ban

Brive outhalf Matthieu Ugalde has been handed a 14 week ban for a horror eye-gouge on Grenoble Armand Battle as he scored a try a couple of weeks back. 

Someohow a French disciplinary panel decided that this was on the lower end of the scale. When you think that Saracens' Chris Ashton just received 13 weeks for having someone put their forearm in his mouth. Consistency anyone?
