Parisse handed one-week ban

Date published: May 21 2015

Sergio Parisse will return from suspension this week after a one-week ban for his red card against Racing-Métro.

The Stade Français captain was sent off in the Parisian derby for taking out Brice Dulin in the air and was suspended while he awaited a hearing.

The disciplinary committee decided to impose a one-week ban, which he served last week by missing the win over Montpellier.

Parisse is now available to return against Brive this week as Stade try to book a spot in the semi-finals on their first return to the play-offs in six seasons.
