NEWS: Stade Francais wing Josaia Raisuqe was handed a season-ending 10-week ban for stamping during his team's European Challenge Cup quarterfinal win over Ospreys.

The 22-year-old Fiji star was yellow-carded for the incident which happened after just 19 minutes of the 25-21 win when he stamped on Ospreys wing Keelan Giles.

He was eventually sent off in the 51st minute of Sunday's match after receiving a second yellow card.

"Josaia Raisuqe has been suspended for 10 weeks following an independent disciplinary hearing in Paris arising from his club's European Rugby Challenge Cup, quarterfinal against the Ospreys at the Principality Stadium," said a statement by the tournament organisers.
