"This club will simply not tolerate this sort of loutish behaviour. As well as insulting a great player, his behaviour was offensive to both clubs and the game of rugby."
Gallacher added that he had been heartened at the overwhelming response from Scarlets fans. "I have received hundreds of messages of support from fans asking us to take the harshest possible action against this man who, the supporters felt, had let them all down."
The club has also had the support of local media and broadcasters in appealing for help in identifying the culprit. Scores of calls and messages came in identifying the man who lives near the Stradey Park ground having recently moved there from the Nottingham area.
