Cape Town - Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal has called fans who booed Bakkies Botha off the pitch in his final game "bastards".

The former Springbok lock played his last game for Toulon at the weekend when they were beaten 33-16 by Stade Francais in the French Top 14 semi-finals.

Toulon fans were not happy with their team’s performance and Botha was booed off the pitch in his final game, something which infuriated the Toulon boss.

Boudjellal is quoted as saying on the RugbyRama website: "What also annoyed me were the whistles towards Bakkies Botha when he came out of the ground. He had just finished his career. I do not know who the bastards are who whistled, but like it or not, we respect the last match of such a great player.”

Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn was the star of the show for Stade Francais, top-scoring with 18 points (three conversions and four penalties) for the Parisians.
