Califano banned from World Cup
Joeli Veitayaki of Fiji goes down after being head butted
French prop Christian Califano has been thrown out of the World Cup.
The Toulouse forward has been banned until 5 December for headbutting a Fijian forward during last Saturday's Pool C decider, which France won 28-19.
In a double set-back Califano's Toulouse team-mate Fabien Pelous received a 14-day ban for stamping.
Both players had been cited by World Cup disciplinary chiefs.
The news is a massive blow to France, who face the winner of Wednesday's Ireland-Argentina quarter final play-off in Lens.
Califano is a key member of France's World Cup hopes and is widely regarded as one of the best scrummagers in world rugby.
France have experienced a serious dip in form since the start of this year's Five nations contest.
After winning two consecutive Grand Slams, they finished bottom of the table in the 1999 contest, scraping only one slim victory against Ireland.
