NEWS: Stade Français will have to do without their French international flyhalf Jules Plisson for the next three Top 14 games after officials punished the 25-year-old for violent conduct.

The ruling comes after Plisson was red carded in a game against Castres on September 10 for a late shoulder charge on Samoan-born wing David Smith, who was on the floor. 

Having already missed Stade's 23-6 away win at Pau on Saturday he will now miss the trip to Toulouse on Saturday and the home game with second placed La Rochelle the weekend after that.

But Plisson will be available for the 2015 French champions for their upcoming Paris derby clash with Racing 92 on October 8.
