Morgan Parra: Verdict on Wednesday

Clermont and France scrum-half Morgan Parra will appear before an LNR Disciplinary Committee hearing on Wednesday after being sent off against Montpellier last Saturday.

Parra was shown a straight red card for an alleged headbutt on Montpellier wing Rene Ranger midway through the first half. (Clermont nevertheless went on to win 42-16). Ranger was shown a yellow card for the tackle that sparked the incident.

Parra and his club requested that the hearing, originally scheduled for 12 March, be brought forward to Wednesday.

Parra - who has 52 caps for France - has been named in the French squad set to clash with Scotland at Murrayfield, meaning that his participation in this year's Six Nations will depend on Wednesday's verdict.
