Josaia Raisuqe handed 15-week ban for eye gouging


Josaia Raisuqe's involvement in this season's European Champions Cup could well be over after the Stade Francais wing was handed a 15-week ban for eye gouging.

Fijian Raisuqe was shown a red card during Stade's win over Munster last weekend, following a tackle with CJ Stander at the end of the first half.

Despite playing the whole second period a man light the French side saw out a 27-7 victory, but they will now be without their winger until May 9.

That means the Parisians would have to make the Champions Cup final for the Fijian to play European rugby again this season.

Meanwhile, Oyonnax will be without prop Stan Wright for three weeks after he was banned for a dangerous tackle on Ulster's Chris Henry.
