Watch: Sergio Parisse Given Shambolic Red Card In Top 14 Opener
By Gavin Cooney

The Top 14 is back in our lives, with former Irish international Simon Zebo set to make his Racing debut against Toulon later today.

Earlier in the day, Stade Francais - Paul O'Connel's Stade Francais to give them their full title -  made light work of newly-promoted Perpignan.

They did so in spite of losing the great Sergio Parisse to a straight red card before half-time. The Italian was sent off for this incident, in which it was deemed he elbowed an opponent. It didn't seem intentional on Parisse's part, and the better part of recklessness belonged to his opponent.

In spite of playing the rest of the game with 14 - and at times 13 - men, Stade were comfortable throughout, eventually winning 46-15.

Perpignan did run in two tries to add gloss to the scoreline, one of which was scored by former Irish international Paddy Jackson.
