Italy captain Sergio Parisse has been banned for 30 days and could miss the rest of the Six Nations after he was sent off during Stade Francais' 30-14 win over Bordeaux in a Top 14 game on Saturday.

A French league disciplinary hearing today heard that Parisse had insulted the match referee, Laurent Cardona.

Forward to 1.10 on the video above to see the red card.

On Twitter, Parisse denied that he had insulted the referee

 

Translated as:

Sorry to my team-mates and fans for the red card, which I find too harsh! I never insulted M. Cardona.

Parisse has the right to appeal the decision within 72 hours of it being issued. Unless successful, Parisse would miss the remainder of the Six Nations. He will miss Italy's match against Wales this Saturday, in Rome.

Ireland play Italy, in Rome, on March 16th, in their final game of the Six Nations.
